Yeah, well .... that's why I don't provide daycare for mine much!!!  I raised my kids and they can raise theirs.  I did watch them on occasion when they were younger, but after one summer of babysitting 2 of them I'd had enough of that.  No regular daycare.  Now, don't get me wrong ... if circumstances warrented it and they needed me to take care of them for some reason, I'd be there in a flash, but just to be a daycare provider ... nope!

If that sounds selfish I'm sorry, but it's time for hubby and me now.  The grandkids are loved tons & tons ... but we've done our job.

I think you are right to be that way. Not selfish at all. I have more spare time than most and my daugther and her husband both work.....grandkids are 7, 8 and 11 so there is much work to be done!
