Grandparents

A grandmother is a babysitter who watches the kids instead of the television. ~Author Unknown There's no place like home except Grandma's. ~Author Unknown Uncles and aunts, and cousins, are all very well, and fathers and mothers are not to be despised; but a grandmother, at holiday time, is worth them all. ~Fanny Fern A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart. ~Author Unknown Grandfathers are for loving and fixing things. ~Author Unknown My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is. ~Ellen DeGeneres I loved their home. Everything smelled older, worn but safe; the food aroma had baked itself into the furniture. ~Susan Strasberg My grandmother is over eighty and still doesn't need glasses. Drinks right out of the bottle. ~Henry Youngman If becoming a grandmother was only a matter of choice, I should advise every one of you straight away to become one. There is no fun for old people like it! ~Hannah Whithall Smith It's such a grand thing to be a mother of a mother - that's why the world calls her grandmother. ~Author Unknown Do you know why grandchildren are always so full of energy? They suck it out of their grandparents. ~Gene Perret Grandchildren are God's way of compensating us for growing old. ~Mary H.

Anything longer than that, and you start to age quickly. ~Gene Perret Elephants and grandchildren never forget. ~Andy Rooney Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap. ~Doug Larson I wish I had the energy that my grandchildren have - if only for self-defense. ~Gene Perret The simplest toy, one which even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent. ~Sam Levenson A grandmother is a little bit parent, a little bit teacher, and a little bit best friend. ~Author Unknown
