Day 28 : Grandparents!

          How lucky are we here to have grandparents as an entity living with us or somewhere near us unlike abroad! They are there to ferry our kids to school, take care of them, feed lunch to them, and also play with them. Is it not? Kids overall like the company of grandparents rather than parents because there are no rules to follow when with the former!

          At my home, melancholy sets in as I get ready to go to my parents' place. Swara's maternal grandparents are jubilant at this time. The reverse situation takes place when I have to leave from there. Strange, right? Not really! Anyway, our day 28 of the challenge hence was reserved for grandparents. The books read were -
