Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children. -Alex Hale
I was quite possibly the worst teenager you could ask for. I put my poor parents through so much and couldn’t have given a care in the world at the time. It wasn’t until I had children of my own that it hit home what fantastic people they are and I now regret every day, everything I put them through.
I had my eldest daughter when I was very young and my parents have been my rock ever since.
They have been my childcare so that I could go back to work and not have to worry about nurseries and childminders, their house is still as if have never really moved out; I’m there most days and the children love it. Nanny and Grandad’s really is their second home. My husband works long hours so most weekends I drag Mum and Dad out on our adventures which they both love. Especially ‘Super Grandad’ who loves to give everything a go. We are convinced he is a secret agent as he can turn his hand to anything!!
But most of all they are there for me at the drop of a hat, a shoulder to cry on, mine and my children’s everything.
