Grandparents


One day grandparents were born.

A challenge given to them: To love these children almost like their own.

To give their children the ability to go to work, to let them go out with friends, feel like humans, lie in occasionally.

These grandparents rose to the challenge like soldiers at war, like contestants of the Crystal Maze, like nurses, like mums queuing at 5am at the Next sales.

And they did it.They loved these children almost like they were their own. They made their grandchildren feel like royalty, like winners, like they could be anything they wanted to be.

And what a prize they won. Grandchildren to love, almost like their own.
