As a grandparent there’s nothing you dread more than seeing one of your grandchildren get in trouble. You’ll gladly take the fall for them, which is exactly why we sent the following note after a short stay with our daughter and her husband, who have three little ones knee high to a grasshopper.
We had a lovely time. We would like to apologize for the condition in which we left the bedroom you graciously prepared for our visit.
We’re so sorry about the sticky door handle. Please don’t blame the twins just because they lathered their hands and arms with orange Popsicles. It was our fault. We often do that same thing at home and forget to wash.
