(Taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds)
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, especially 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.



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

Have 15, have not seen the newest yet (born three weeks ago) but one is sleeping in the extra bedroom right now. Wish I saw each of them more, but one at a time. They are much more fun that way!!

68 with 5 grandkids and two great-grand kids. Just got home from Evergreen, Colorado where we spent the weekend with eldest son and his two grandkids and celebrated the youngest kid's 2nd birthday (July 4th). Had a wonderful time watching him and his brother play with all the new toys. We had to buy both boys toys to keep peace in the family.

Thom is 45 and I am 43. We have 1 granddaughter (age 4) right now. She thinks that grandma and grandpa are "silly".
Even if we can't go to see her or have her come to us we still video chat almost every weekend. Tried just talking on the phone but she gets distracted but with something like Skype we can have a tea party across state lines or read a book to her or have her "read" one to us.
