Grandparents

Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting. Grandmothers are just 'antique' little girls. A grandmother is a babysitter who watches the kids instead of the television. Grandmas never run out of hugs or cookies. Grandmas hold our tiny hands for just a little while, but our hearts forever. It's such a grand thing to be a mother of a mother - that's why the world calls her grandmother.  Grandmother-grandchild relationships are simple. Grandmas are short on criticism and long on love. Grandmother - a wonderful mother with lots of practice. A grandparent is old on the outside but young on the inside. It's amazing how grandparents seem so young once you become one. Grandparents are similar to a piece of string - handy to have around and easily wrapped around the fingers of their grandchildren. ~ Author Unknown
What a bargain grandchildren are! I give them my loose change, and they give me a million dollars' worth of pleasure. Grandchildren don't stay young forever, which is good because Grandfathers have only so many horsy rides in them. My grandkids believe I'm the oldest thing in the world. And after two or three hours with them, I believe it, too. An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again; anything longer than that and you start to age quickly. I wish I had the energy that my grandchildren have - if only for self-defense. ~Gene Perret
