Sassy Toddler Runs Right Past Grandma to Hug Grandpa Instead.

When you visit your grandchildren, you don’t expect them to play favorites. Everyone assumes Grandma is the favorite. She bakes the cookies, wraps the gifts, and gives the best hugs. The typical Grandpa sits majestically in his armchair, overseeing his domain. He’s a friendly lap to sit in but usually isn’t the favorite. When Grandma and Grandpa aren’t on equal footing, Grandma is most often the favorite. That’s why you might not expect this toddler to pass right by Grandma for a hug from Grandpa instead!


When this Grandma and Grandpa came to visit their adorable little granddaughter, Grandma was expecting the first hug. As the child ran up the walkway to greet them, Grandma knelt, holding her arms out expectantly.
