My Mil will give the kids candy and ask them to be her valentine. It is sweet. She also comes down on Easter Sunday with Peanut butter Eggs for the kids LOL!Yes, she spoils her grand kids rotten.I hope when I have grandkids I am the same way though. She is a wonderful role model! My Mom sends cards she lives in PA so she cannot do much. Btw, she is a wonderful role model too! When we go to visit she is all about the boys and even COOKS for them LOL! ( They are empty nesters so Mom cooking is kinda a big deal she hates to cook) LOL!

My grandson and I will be making Valentines for Mom, Dad and Papa today. He is too small for candy so I bought him a Be Mine shirt.

Yes, my mom and step dad give them a card and candy, my dad and step mom gave them a card with $15 iTunes gift cards, and my grandparents sent them a card with $5 each. I don't have inlaws, and their father's parents have not attempted to have anything to do with them since my divorce 6 years ago...their choice, not mine.

my mom makes treats (just what we need, more treats lol) and gets him a little stuffed animal or something small. he's the only grandchild so she tends to spoil the crap out of him lol

*part of her feels guilty that she can't be more invilved because she still works full time so i think sometimes she goes a little over board to make up for it. But in all honesty, it's my fault she is a full time working gma, im the one that had a kid at 19 lol
