    No offense to grandpa.

    GRANDMAS ARE SMART


    I was out walking with my grandson. He picked up something off of the ground
    and started to put it in his mouth. I took the item away from him and I
    asked him not to do that.


    "Why?" my grandson asked.


    "Because it's been on the ground; you don't know where it's been, it's
    dirty, and probably has germs. Sometimes germs make little boys sick and not
    feel good" I replied.


    At this point, my grandson looked at me with total admiration and asked,
    "Grandma, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart."


    I was thinking quickly and said to him, "All Grandmas know stuff. It's on
    the Grandma Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Grandma."


    We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but he was evidently
    pondering this new information. "Oh...I get it! He beamed, so if you don't
    pass the test you have to be the Grandpa."


    "Exactly," I replied with a big smile on my face. When you're finished
    laughing, send this to a Grandma you know!!

    I agree.
    I had told our oldest Granddaughter "usually your kids don't think the Mom knows much but think the Gramma is brillant". Her reply was "well I don't". She was 23 or so. She is out spoken to me, I've always allowed her to be and she doesn't give praise easily. I think she doesn't believe all her words. She has since led me to believe she agrees with more things than she says. I love her no matter what she says.
