Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
Some of the world's best educators are grandparents.
DR. CHARLIE W. SHEDD, as quoted in Just Grandparents
The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby's grandparents. You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods, which is why most grandparents flee to Florida.
DAVE BARRY, as quoted in Just Grandparents
Grandparents should play the same role in the family as an elder statesman can in the government of a country. They have the experience and knowledge that comes from surviving a great many years of life's battles and the wisdom, hopefully, to recognise how their grandchildren can benefit from this.
GEOFF DENCH, Grandmothers: The Changing Culture
There is nothing more wonderful than the love and guidance a grandparent can give his or her grandchild.
EDWARD FAYS, The Grandparent's Treasure Chest
What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies.
RUDOLPH GIULIANI, as quoted in Just Grandparents
Grandmas defy description. They really do. They occupy such a unique place in the life of a child. They can shed the yoke of responsibility, relax, and enjoy their grandchildren in a way that was not possible when they were raising their own children. And they can glow in the realization that here is their seed of life that will harvest generations to come.
ERMA BOMBECK, At Wit's End
Grandparents have the freedom to see their grandchildren uncritically.
DR. BENJAMIN SPOCK, Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care
Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap.
DOUG LARSON, attributed, Quotable Quotes
You fall so deeply in love with your grandbaby. It's so so so much easier than being a parent, because you really don't have much responsibility. And just when you are at the end of your rope with exhaustion, the parents take the baby away. So it's the best of both worlds.
