Imagine going from having 4-6 people doting over you and taking care of you, having yummy ice creams, cookies and treats, staying up too late and having no responsibilities whatsoever to having 1 slightly cranky lady monitoring your playtime, boring meals (haven't been shopping yet since our return) and immediate immersion into schoolwork and "gasp" housework. We are definitely going through grandparent detox.
Grandparent detox is hard all around. It's hard for the grandparents. It's hard for the kids and it is hard for the parents of the kids. It takes days to return to normal. LONG days. Can I have a spring break? Please?
