  • I have a grown one and I have a little one -- I can't imagine either of them not being near me! Grandchildren included.

  • mine are 18 months so I'll answer for my mom who has 4 grandkids, 3 1/2, 18 months (2) and 7 months. she would LOVE to see all of them everyday. she sees mine everyday because we live with her (bless her heart) and I know she'd love to see my neice and nephew everyday if she could.

  • Ok guess Im the BAD one here. I WILL NOT raise a grandchild. I dont have any as of yet, but if and when my kid's do, I WILL NOT raise them. If they cant make it on their own then Im not going to enable them by taking them in and doing the mom's job.

  • My boys are still babies their selves but I wouldnt care to HELP them raise their kids I know how hard it is ( I wouldnt change any of it for anything ) and I didnt really get any help so and I guess its just the mom in me but I dont want to see my kids have any hard times on what ever it may be..
