Amen to that @nope. My grandson is like the spiting image of my son. He looks the same, he acts the same. It’s like I get to spend time with my little son again, before he became 6’ 4”. It’s like a precious gift that kind of hurts.

I become happy as well as sad when I think about my struggling days!

I babysit one of my grand kids 5 days a week. That makes me happy. My DIL works for a school district. But today school got cancelled due to ice, so no baby sitting for me today. That made me happy and sad at the same time.
