This is love. Grandparents adore their grandkids like crazzzzy. They get to shower them with love, spoil them, and just enjoy them. My sister asked my grandfather herself, pulling the towel...
"My grandfather is turning 100 years old next month & she remains the only grandchild he has ever piggybacked out of 24 grandkids and 8 kids of his own."

"My nephew used to do this with his children when they were little. Trust me, it's the best to get anything done if you are left with the little one."
