Our expert says:
Obviously, the loss of your parents must have been an awful experience for you. And though you're right, that people differ in how they react to even events like a grand-daughhter's birthday, you'd be reasonable to expect a bit more show of affection from them. Have you tried very gently to ask them about how they feel about the child, mentioning that you just feel unsure because they donm't show their affection in an obvious way. ? Maybe ask your husband, who has obviously many more years experience of how to read and understand them, how he sees this situation.
There is absolutely nothing whatever wrong with you, for finding their --- how shall we say ? --- their not demonstrating obvious affection for the child, a bit worrying. Its obvious that you are a very lovin and cautious person, and they're lucky to have their relationship with you
