I’m feeling very sad at the moment. I found out a few weeks ago that my first grand baby is due next year. I can’t describe the excitement I felt at this news! I’ve been madly buying baby clothes, toys, books, knitting away. Looking forward to the big event, planning a trip to visit around bubs due date. Now, I life in a different state from my soon to be first grand baby so I always knew I wouldn’t get to see it as often as I’ld like, I knew that. However, to be told by my son “You can wait til baby is at least 1 month old and visit for 4 days tops!” Well, I lost it, haven’t stopped crying. I know they’ll have a new baby and will be adapting, but I didn’t expect anything more then to be able to spend some time with them, help out with the demands of having a newborn. I know I won’t be a big part of its life, but being told this really made it hit home. It saddens me greatly and I feel like I should just withdraw all together as I’ll only be hurt with limited contact. What do other MoMs think? Anyone else in a similar situation?
