Hi all.. Just made this observation when I had gone out on the weekend.. There was this family husband, wife, their baby(maybe few months say 9 months or so) and a grandparent( not sure maternal or paternal). They all were at this museum sorts of place.. Now the observation: The husband was with the kid in the stroller showing all the display and talking to the baby. The mom was tagging along behind them and the grandparent was behind her.. There was a good 2 arm distance between each one.. There were times when the wife was looking after the needs of the kid and also pointing out somethings and excited.. then later she goes behind talks to the grandparent and shows things and they talk..after that they are back to the same 2 arm distance between them.. Sometimes the grandparent used to go check out the stuff on his own..one time he was searching for the family and the wife for searching for him.. There were times of awkward energy.. Now what's your take on this.. would the grandparent have felt like a third wheel or is it just me as a observer?? Someday when I would have kids I would like to take the grandparents(mine and his parents) for family outings.. How to balance from them feeling like a third wheel? Or me or my husband feeling like third wheel when their spouse's family comes along?
