My grandma practically raise me up to the age of 4 so my mum could work full time which she did from age 15 to 65. I remember my grandma doing far more with me than my mum could ever have the energy or inclination to do with any of my kids.

Also as a much older mum 3rd time round I can confirm it's exhausting so your friend may not appreciate her grand kids as much as she'd like to believe! 😉
That last line may be the truest one! She won't know until she tries it, I think.

But the rest is also true. Some grandmothers do act like grandchildren are a "do-over" without taking parents' thoughts into consideration. Or they just ignore it. I haven't forgotten that side of the mommy wars.
