in your kids lives? Are they good grandparents? My mom is awesome. She spends a lot of time with my dd. My dd adores her. My mom was actually the first one to ever hold my dd and I think they have a really special bond.
My dad is not so involved. In fact....my dd was cleaning out her room and found a picture of her as a baby with my dad. She threw it away. I found it and asked why she threw it away and she said she didn't know the man in the picture.
My husbands mom lives far away and doesn't get to see her often. But she is loving and talks to her on the phone.

My parents live 6 hours away so they aren't as involved as they used to be. When we lived in the same town they saw my girls several times a week, but both of our families keep moving and we keep ending up farther away from each other. Now, we only get to see them a few times a year, but my girls still adore them. My FIL was very close with my older daughter, she loved going to see him, but he was on dialysis and very sick when my younger daughter was born and she never got that bond. My MIL has made her involvement miserable for my kids because of her hateful and rude comments about me. If she were to take them someone where it would be "Aren't you glad Nanny is taking you here since your mom never would?" If it were true it might cause them to resent me, but since none of it is, they end up resenting her. We all wish her involvement would just go away.
