(Taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds) You'll love it:
Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own. They like other people's.
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.
They don't say, 'Hurry up.'
They wear glasses and funny underwear.
They can take their teeth and gums out.
Grandparents don't have to be smart.
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 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 THE AIRPORT.''
It's funny when they bend over; you hear gas leaks, and they blame their dog.
