What I overheard....

in the curling club locker room.

Parent: "She said, you love that kid, but I love him more."

The rest is a recap of the discussion that followed, but not direct quotes.

Parent: I thought how could you love him more, I'm his mother. She said it very lovingly, it wasn't meant to be hurtful, and I could tell she really meant it and believed it.

Grandparent: It's true, grandparents love their grandkids more than their parents love them. It's different because they're not yours, and they're not a given, and you could lose them at any time. It's a really special relationship.

What else is there to say?
