I am not a grandparent yet, but I would NOT hesitate & wouldn't have it any other way!  I was fortunate to have my mom/dad/brothers watching my son.  He was the first grandchild & only nephew, so my family loved him so very much!  Gosh, my parents would never allow me to have a stranger babysit him.  I'm glad my parents had him alot (as I worked full time) because my parents have since passed & my son is thankful for all the wonderful memories he has with his grandparents! heart
