    love fest!!  Give them some time.  They'll start asking when you're going to make them grandparents.  Then take over an entire room (wing, if you let them!) of your house to stay nearer the grandkids.  Then, then, then.  Well, maybe that's not so bad after all.  Nice to have built in babysitters.  Ok, let the love fest commence.

      that we weren't going to give them grandkids (they knew their oldest son quite well and that he wasn't parenting material), but I have to admit my mother-in-law has been getting a bit wistful over the lack of progeny (of course, it's now pretty much academic at my age and my baby factory finally shutting down).

        I am somewhat relieved the  baby factory parts on me is shutting down.  But before we had our girl, my in-laws were made-for-tv characters about giving them a grandchild.  And then after our girl was born, it wasn't three months before they started in again.  They are Catholic and have littered the world with offspring.  But their kids have held back to just one or two.  Apparently their kids did not have the romantic view they had of growing up poor in a crowded house, etc..  And incidentally, none of their kids or grandkids are Catholic.

        Having said all that, they do make good babysitters when they are in town!!
