Coming home after a shopping trip, she stopped in her tracks as she entered the living room. Oh my, what happened?
The chaos in the room spoke for itself. The toys littered everywhere, and a glass of milk spilled. A child could be heard crying, somewhere.
With concern, she went to her daughter’s bedroom. Her grandson was crying, and his mother admonishing him.
