WHAT IS A GRANDPARENT?

Posted Dec 29 2009 5:22am


(Taken from papers written by  a class of 8-year-olds) You'll love it: 

Grandparents  are a lady and a man who have no little children of  their own. They like other  people's.


A  grandfather is a man, & a grandmother is a  lady!


Grandparents  don't have to do anything except be there when we  come to see them. They are so old they shouldn't  play hard or run. It is good if they drive us to the  shops and give us money.


When  they take us for walks, they slow down past things  like pretty leaves and caterpillars.

They  show us and talk to us about the colors of the  flowers and also why we shouldn't step on  'cracks.'


They  don't say, 'Hurry up.'


Usually  grandmothers are fat but not too fat to tie your  shoes.


They  wear glasses and funny  underwear.


They  can take their teeth and gums  out.


Grandparents  don't have to be smart.


They  have to answer questions like 'Why isn't God  married?' and 'How come dogs chase  cats?'


When  they read to us, they don't skip. They don't mind if  we ask for the same story over  again.


Everybody  should try to have a grandmother, espe cially if you  don't have television because they are the only  grownups who like to spend time with  us.


They  know we should have snack time before bed time, and  they say prayers with us and kiss us even when we've  acted bad.



A  6-YEAR-OLD WAS ASKED WHERE HIS GRANDMA  LIVED.
 ''OH,''  HE SAID, ''SHE LIVES AT THE AIRPORT, AND WHEN WE  WANT HER, WE JUST GO GET HER. THEN WHEN WE'RE DONE  HAVING HER VISIT, WE TAKE HER BACK TO THE  AIRPORT.''

GRANDPA  IS THE SMARTEST MAN ON EARTH! HE TEACHES ME GOOD  THINGS, BUT I DON'T GET TO SEE HIM ENOUGH TO GET AS  SMART AS HIM!


It's  funny when they bend over; you hear gas leaks, and  they blame their  dog.


Send this to other grandparents, almost  grandparents, or heck, send it to everyone. It will  make their day.
