That was very common during Parents Evenings.....

"Your son /daughter is excellent, always tidies up and is very willing to help."

"I wish they were like that at home.... one grunt answers, never clears their place, clothes hung up on the floor and their bedroom is an absolute tip !"

My answer was normally something like; " Which would you prefer ? Excellent at home and atrocious at school or the reverse ?"

The answer was always the same......

Yes so have we Jean so many times

Our adopted granddaughter was born alcohol/drug damaged, I say only she was adopted because it wasnít down to our son or his wife

She is mine all mine as far as grandkids go, but she was a nightmare at school, she was constantly excluded for bad behaviour, had restricted emotional development, she expressed things inappropriately to others and was quick to aggression

We were devastated when our sons marriage came to an end , we worried about Izzy as our son made a new relationship with a girl with two kids, and she became pregnant with his firstborn

But it couldnít have worked out better for Izzy she adores Archie, learnt to live with his partners two kids and now adores the new baby

Always she has a baby on her hip, she has moved to special school , where she is no longer the odd one out , shares time between our son and his ex wife, our ex daughter in law that we remain on good terms with, I didnít divorce her

Izzy no longer spends most weekends with us, she no longer needs us as she grows up

We worry and things work out in spite of our worry

And a phone from our 26 year old granddaughter, grandma I want to come home for a while, Iíll get tested at work, no matter I said you can join our bubble

She needs company whilst she works from home, meals cooked and spoiled

And who better than her grandma and grandad who have spoilt her throughout her life to accommodate her

Gosh, I feel blessed. Well maybe just content counting my blessings.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Waking up to a new morning is a blessing for all of us

the love of friends and family is a blessing for all of us,

seeing the world, either local or distant is a blessing,

being surrounded by nature and with any opportunity to see, hear or feel it,

all in all our blessings cannot be counted - they are infinite.
