GRAND MOM IN THE MAKING


Were you ever asked this question – Who is a
grandmother?

As I read through an extract taken from papers
written by a
class of
8-year-olds, I began to imagine what I will be like when I eventually become a grand mom!

Take a peep and feed your imagination!   

A grandmother is a
lady who has
no little children
of her own.
She likes other
people.
A grandfather is a
man
grandmother.     
                                         
Grandmothers 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 store and
have lots of quarters for us.
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 color 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.
Grandmothers don’t
have to be
smart.
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
grown-ups
Who like to spend
time with us.
They know we
should have
Snack-time before
bedtime and
They say prayers
with us every time,
And kiss us even
when
We’ve acted badly.

    @kayode Banjo I love the angle you read this post. Yes! we don't need to be old to close our eyes and ears to some of the tiring and repeated 'wants' of our kids.

    Thank you for the comment.

    Nice one Roselyn. I think there's a lesson for us parents to learn here. We don't have to be old and geriatriac to be nice to our kids.
