Grandkids First

I could talk for hours about my favorite topic…grandchildren! But I am not the only one…

“The presence of a grandparent confirms that parents were, indeed, little once, too, and that people who are little can grow to be big, can become parents, and one day even have grandchildren of their own. So often we think of grandparents as belonging to the past; but in this important way, grandparents, for young children, belong to the future.”

             Fred Rogers

“My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She’s 97 now, and we don’t know where the heck she is.”

  – Ellen DeGeneres

“Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.” 

              – Alex Haley

“A grandmother pretends she doesn’t know who you are on Halloween.”

            – Erma Bombeck


“We should all have one person who knows how to bless us despite the evidence. Grandmother was that person to me.”

           – Phyllis Theroux

“To forget one’s ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root.”

                                                                                    – Chinese proverb
