What is a Grandparent?

[164 words]

These answers to that question were taken from papers written by a class of eight-year-olds.

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

• 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.

• When they take us for walks, they slow down for things like pretty leaves and caterpillars. They don’t say, “Hurry up.”

• They wear glasses and funny underwear. They can take their teeth and gums out.

• Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have television, because grandparents 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.

Ultimately, grandparents are people who have lived and loved long enough to do it better every day!
