I'm surprised at how quickly children pass out of the toy stage these days. By the ageof 8, all my grandchildren were into electronic things, and toys have all but disappeared by the age of 9.
The youngest two have birthdays this week, aged 10 and 13, so OH and I took them down to London to the zoo yesterday.We all had a great day, and they were a pleasure to be with, and couldn't thank us enough, bless them! I'm sure I enjoy the grandchildren more than I did their Mum, who was very hard work as a child!

They aren't children for long these days, or babies for that matter.
My granddaughter is two today. She can dress herself, including socks, shoes and coat (her six year old brother still struggles to get his socks on properly).
She'd rather be outside helping dad ,uncle or granddad do manuel work like passing spanners or looking under car bonnets, or carrying in fire wood for the house, which is great but if I have her and the weather isn't suitable to go out for walks etc she's a nightmare to entertain.
It's lovely to have any of them for a few hours but being grandchildren it's great to be able to hand them back to Mum and Dad at the end of the day!!
