What is a Grandparent?

If you are not a  grandparent, you will still love this. If you are, it  shows how precious the babies are and what grandparents mean to  them. 
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 their own.  They  like other  people's. 
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  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 have  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  THEAIRPORT.'' 

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.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
