“Honestly I’ve got this. Need to go, will bring him back Sunday. Say goodbye to Mummy.”

Gurgles from the pushchair.

“And brown bread! I almost forgot, how could I forget about brown..”

  1. My grandchildren’s parents are divorced. One week they spend with Mom and the next with Dad. I have to say that my son knows how to take care of the kids, though certainly he’s received a lot of support from my wife and I. It’s tough and it’s especially hard on my eight-year-old grandson, but as a Grandpa, it’s my job to help my grandkids fee loved and safe and cared for.
