You know the typical grandmothers. They bend over backwards to make their grandkids smile. I know grandmothers who travel hundreds of miles to get that best gift for the kid. I know grandmothers who choose a larger car — so that the kids can have a place to sit when they visit those few times a year. I know grandmothers who will learn a new language in their golden years so that they can communicate better with their grandkids. I know grandmothers who will create a storm of cooking in the kitchen at every whim of the kid. I know grandmothers who will scold the kid’s parents for being “too hard”.
Since I have zero experience in being a grandmother I really can’t tell you what makes them do this. It’s odd – but boy do I relish in this love!
