Grandparents have it easy. They get to spoil the grandchildren, bestow gifts and food and snacks, without the responsibility of actually raising the kid. It's a win-win. No long nights up with crying. Big bowls of ice cream.
They do have one responsibility though: grandparents are built-in babysitters, a task most look forward to as extra time with their sweet little babies. But what if you're saddled with a kid and you have important stuff to take care of? What if you have a part-time job and you happen to be watching your grandchild on a day when you absolutely have to head into the office?
Normally that wouldn't be a big deal, but if your office is a meth lab, it's definitely a big deal.
