James Dobson relates this essay written by a 9 year old girl about Grandparents, listen to what she says: "A grandmother is a lady who has no children of her own. She likes other people’s little girls and boys. A grandfather is a man grandmother. He goes for walks with the boys and they talk about fishing and stuff like that. Grandmother’s don’t have to do anything but.. be there. Their old, so they shouldn’t play too hard or run. It’s enough if they drive us to the market where the pretend horse is and have plenty of quarters ready. Or if they take us for walks they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars. Usually, grandmother’s are fat but not too fat to tie your shoes. They wear glasses and funny underwear, they can take their teeth and gums off! When they read to us they don’t skip or mind it if it is the same story again. Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have TV- because they’re the only grown-ups who have time."
