A few years ago I went vacationing with a friend and her family, and another couple. We ended up at park somewhere on the trip for a pitstop. My friend's husband had this great idea to play tag with the kids.....that game is a lot harder when you are older, I wanted to knock him out afterwards.It's a fine line. My parents are in their 80's and when my brother, wife, & nephews visited from out-of-town a couple of years ago and the 2 kids aged like 6 & 8 or so needed looking after for a couple of days I volunteered to look after them.
My mother thanked me later as they just don't have the energy & health to look after 2 high energy kids ... heck, I was pooped after 2 days - it's unbelievable how they can just go-go-go at 100% all the time!
