With my grandmother, Imogene Garrett--I am the one with with the weird hair, standing far left--1967

1)The reason grandchildren and grandparents get along so well is that they have a common enemy. ~Sam Levenson

2)Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting. ~Author Unknown

4) Grandmothers are just "antique" little girls. ~Author Unknown

5) Perfect love sometimes does not come until the first grandchild. ~Welsh Proverb

6) A child needs a grandparent, anybody's grandparent, to grow a little more securely into an unfamiliar world. ~Charles and Ann Morse

7) 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

8) A house needs a grandma in it. ~Louisa May Alcott

9) Our grandchildren accept us for ourselves, without rebuke or effort to change us, as no one in our entire lives has ever done, not our parents, siblings, spouses, friends - and hardly ever our own grown children. ~Ruth Goode

10)A grandmother is a babysitter who watches the kids instead of the television. ~Author Unknown

11) When a child is born, so are grandmothers. ~Judith Levy
