Some women look forward to the end of menopause because it will mean retirement and having the kids grown and out of the house. Others start menopause so early that they still have young ones or teenagers at home so everyone's hormones are going crazy at the same time! And some never really have a chance to experience the "empty nest" because grown kids are moving back in or Grandparents are raising the grandchildren!
You really have to find a way to enjoy time to yourself and still feel that you are being the kind of grandparent you want to be. It can be a real blessing or it can be another stressful time in your life!
