- Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own. They like other peoples.
- A grandfather is a man and a grandmother is a lady.
- 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.
- 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 colours of the flowers and also why we shouldn't step on "cracks."
- They don't say, 'Hurry up.'
- Usually grandmothers are fat but not too fat to tie your shoes.
- 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 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.

"You don't have to listen to him," the Betty (aged 4½) replied. "Why not?" the grandmother asked. Betty answered, "Because you're his mother!"

He's nearly eighty and, although used to be an engineer within the US Air Force, he is completely stuck when it comes to computers. He came back from his first evening at this course. When asked how it had gone, he replied, 'Yes, it was really good. I really enjoyed it, but I really couldn't get to grips with my mole.' I stopped for a second, completely puzzled, until I realised he was talking about the mouse.

Mother Knows Best - EventuallyOne day, young Sarah girl was watching her mother make a roast sirloin of beef. She cut off the ends, wrapped it in string, seasoned it and set it in the roasting dish. Sarah politely asked her mum why she cut off the ends of the roast. Mum replied, after some thought, that it was the way that her mother had done it. That night grandma came to dinner and Sarah and her mother asked why she had cut the end off of the roast before cooking. After some thought grandma replied, she cooked the meat the way her mother had done it. Now great-grandma was quite old and lived in a residential nursing home, so Sarah, her mum and grandma went to visit her and again asked the very same question. Great-grandma looked at them a bit surprised and said, 'So it would fit in the roasting dish, of course.'
