Grandson # one
Saw grandson #one for the first time in over 3 and half years yesterday. He is now 5, my DS and his then gf were only 16, he walked away when he found out...we did not know, we found out when she was 8 months pregnant, DS made the usual comments of its not mine...she is a loose girl blah blah blah...he was kept informed by her of progress and then birth, he got upset that she chose name and why was he not consulted....yes. He acknowledged his son, we took him to visit, we took him to register bubs, she and bubs came to stay for xmas DS went back with her and they tried to parent....7 months and he was back here with us...she was upset and refused to let us see grandson...I persevered sent birthday Christmas and easter gifts and cards...she started sending me yearly photos then sent me a message stating that grandson was asking questions and could I send photo of us, I did, she asked could we all meet so that bubs could get to know us and for the first few visits she would stay with us until he is happy to be with us. Yesterday was that day, she has done a fantastic job of parenting him, he is polite, funny, loves animals especially spiders and snakes we had a fantastic day out at little zoo, he did not want to hug but that is fine its too soon.
I will chat about the others later.
