I recieved another email about Grandparents. It is the way Grandparents are seen by 8 year olds. this one is more for the Grandpa's. It's very cute. Enjoy!
-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 grandmother.

- 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 color of the flowers and also why we shouldn't step on "cracks."

- They wear glasses and funny underwear.

- They can take their teeth and gums out.

- 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 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.

-Grandpa works in the shed all the time because he doesn't like broccoli either.

A Boy Needs A Grandpa

A boy needs a Grandpa...For man-to-man talks,

To go hand in hand

On companionable walks,

To fix up his toys

When they no longer go,

To tell him the things

Little boys want to know.

A boy needs a Grandpa...

To show him the way

To handle a puppy,

To teach him fair play.

To impart bits of wisdom

He's learned through the years,

That it's no disgrace

For a man to shed tears.

A boy needs a Grandpa...

To sit on his lap

And if no one is looking,

They take a wee nap,

Each wrapped in an aura

Of love and esteem,

Each smiling gently

At some special dream.
