Grandparents Doing School Run

Other

I am a grannie who does the school and nursery run every day as I look after 2 of my grandkids whilst their mum goes to work. Iโ€™ve noticed lately there seems to be more and more grandparents doing school runs which I personally think is lovely.

Yes Grandparents love to spend time with grandchildren. Also I read recently that " Grandparents who babysit tend to live longer. Next week my parents in law are coming from my hometown to stay with us for the next two months and spend time with us and our children.

My mother in law would move over here if she could! She loves coming to visit us and seeing her grandson. She would more than happily take him to school and pick him up each day (when he is old enough to go to school).

My husband has the most wonderful relationship with his granny and I would love my son to have a good relationship with his grandparents.

I would happily have the Grandparents do the school run for me. The 500 mile round trip might annoy them each day.๐Ÿคฃ

Haha I would imagine it would ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I'm lucky enough to live in the same village as 2 of my grandkids and only a couple of miles away from the other one ๐Ÿ˜Š

Grandparents are a god send ๐Ÿ™Œ i remember my gran taking me to school and picking me up. My mother does it for our kids aswell and hopefully one day i will be doing the same. Working full time would be such a struggle without grandparents being able to do the school run, or we would end up having to pay for childcare ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿคฃ

Well I work more or less full time so can't do the school run. However my daughter in law works Saturday, Monday and Tuesday so during the school holidays I take every Tuesday off as holiday and spend it with my grandson and on the Mondays he sees his other Gran and grandad.

I love the time we spend together cooking, homework, outings etc.

I work too but luckily only part time So am able to spend a lot of time with my grandchildren. The 2 I look after the most are my sons who I lost in July 2017 so my time spent with them is very special โค๏ธNot saying the time spent with my other granddaughter isnโ€™t just as special ๐Ÿ˜Š
