Living for the Kids?

Before I had grandchildren, it was hard to imagine how attached I would become to the little darlings (same for my kids actually). I liked other people’s kids and grandkids, but I could take them or leave them. Now that I have them, I can totally relate to “living for the kids”–grandkids, that is.
