Grandparents day is TODAY and it got us thinking about grandparents and why they are so awesome. And we came up with a couple possible reasons:
They are always on our side. “The reason grandchildren and grandparents get along so well is that they have a common enemy.” Sam Levenson
They look out for us. “The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby’s grandparents. You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods, which is why most grandparents flee to Florida.” Dave Barry
They are resilient. “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
They pass on wisdom. “My granddaughter came to spend a few weeks with me, and I decided to teach her to sew. After I had gone through a lengthy explanation of how to thread the machine, she stepped back, put her hands on her hips, and said in disbelief, ‘You mean you can do all that, but you can’t play my Game Boy?’” Author Unknown
Here’s to grandparents everywhere, thank you for all that you do. We wouldn’t be who we are with you. Happy Grandparents Day!
