WHAT IS A GRANDPARENT?
(TAKEN FROM PAPERS WRITTEN BY A CLASS OF 8-YEAR-OLDS)

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

A grandfather is a man grandmother.

When they take us for walks, they talk to us about the color of flowers and also why we shouldn’t step on “cracks.”

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.

Everyone should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have television, because they are the only grown ups who like to spend time with us.

They know we should have snack-time before bedtime and they say prayers with us every time and kiss us even when we’ve acted bad.

A 6 YEAR OLD WAS ASKED WHERE HIS GRANDMA LIVE.  “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.”
