Ask Honey: How Do I Keep the Connection With My Grandkids After Recently Divorcing?

Dear Honey, I am recently divorced after 30+years. How do I handle being a new Grandma with him and his new (not so nice new wife).

Dear Wondering Gramma,

You are in a new family situation called the Blended Family. Your priority is to bond with "your" grandchild. That child is your son's or daughter's so I don't know why there should be conflict with the "new" wife or your ex over the baby. When you are all together with the baby, you will have to rise to the occasion for everyone's sake.
