"She's so sweet, I don't know what to do," is the line that jumped out at me, because I have an 18 month old. It's that way, sometimes. You, as a parent and a grandparent, are given these wonderful gifts from God called children. Very rarely are they NOT angels. You wonder if you are worthy to be their parents. After reading it a second time, my understanding of it was not changed really. Besides the 18 month old, my husband and I have a 14 year old and an 11 year old. I still think that they are gifts to us from God and that rarely they do NOT act like angels (even with the 14 year old!)
