What is a Grandmother?

January 30, 2011

I was going thru some of my piles when I came across a old newpaper clipping. My mother must have cut it out years ago but now that I am about to become a grandma it was the perfect time for me to read it.

What is a Grandmother?

A grandmother is a lady who has no little children of her own. She likes other people’s. A grandfather is a man grandmother.

Grandmothers don’t have to do anything except be there. They are old, so they shouldn’t play hard or run. It is enough if they drive us to the market and have a lot of dimes ready. When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars. They never 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 out. Grandmothers don’t have to be smart, they only 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 lines or mind if we ask for the same story over again.

Every body should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have a TV. because they are the only grown-ups who have time.
