WHAT IS A GRANDPARENT?


Taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds. You'll love it:

Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of th...eir own. They like other peoples.'

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 colours 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.

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.''

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!

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

When my grand daughter, was trying to use an ipad, she was 4 years old and pretty cluey, but it wasn't working, I was in the lounge room, and looking at her getting upset. Her Dad and grand mother were in the kitchen, and her Dad asked her "What's wrong with it?", and out of the mouths of babies comes the answer: "It's F,,,,d", we all heard it, and I cracked up, her dad had his mouth open, and said! Go to your room, young Lady, that is a swear word", as soon as she went in the room crying, we all went outside and cracked up. We come in 10 minutes later, and she is still sobbing, and her Dad said, I will go and let her out, and also ask where she heard it being said. So he lets her out and asks her and she said " You say it daddy, every time you are in the shed working on the motorbike" so he apologised to her, and said " If you ever hear me say it again come and tell me You said a bad word Daddy, and I will apologise to you" So the moral of this story is  What comes out of your mouth, your children are likely to repeat it, especially at inopportune moments
