*WHO ARE* *GRANDPARENTS?*
🎅🤶

✍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 children.

😘A grandfather is a man, and 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 they 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.

😘They say prayers with us and kiss us even when we’ve acted bad.

😘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!

👦​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🛫.”
