Certainly in my case growing up when my grandparents were out or away we didn't go over. It was very consensual for all parties. I remained very close to my grandmother until she died. I would spend at least one uni holiday break with her every year.
I don't see you calling out your pro finch friends who made judgmental comments about working mums very early on in the thread..
. I think some progress is being made in terms of the broader concepts behind judging. Of course when people throw personalised comments in things can go off track a bit. Anyhoo this is a thread about judging. If someone can't stand the heat maybe time to get out of the kitchen.

I wasn't apparently and had to justify the intimate ins and outs of why I felt the way I did.
Wow, this thread sure had turned!
Like I said in my first post, I don't agree with it for MY life. But we need to remember that Finch and her husband are not normal people. They are B (C?) grade celebs. That means being seen at places. I would guess they don't stay home all weekend rolling around in bed screaming "YAY! YAY! the kid is gone" they are probably out at movie premiers, parties etc trying to keep their 5 minute of fame going. It's not a normal life. I do feel for the Grandma though. I read she's 85. 2 days with an energetic 2yo every week must wear her out!
I'm another that spent a lot of time with my grandparents. Not every weekend (we lived 2.5 hours away) and not alone so much when I was little (that I remember anyway) but once I hit about 10, I asked to spend a week of my school holidays with them at the end of term. I loved it. We would do all sorts of fun things and I cherish those memories now that they are both gone.
Goes back to my theory on judging - everyone judges, it's just that they usually only judge those they disagree with and/or that aren't considered one of their own. Not saying it's happening in this thread however that's how cliques form.
