“Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.” – Alex Haley
Apart from being the backbone of our family, grandparents are the official pioneers in the business of ‘Spoiling Children with Love’. Spending time with kids seems to be their favorite stress buster. They don’t need big things for being happy, their face lights up simply by embracing their grandchildren, and they love them like anything. This is why the endearing relationship of grandparents with the little rug rats is the most cherished one! This year, 9th of September will mark the Grandparents Day 2018. Give this sweet relationship wings by spending quality time with your grandparents.
