A definition of a grandmother written by a boy of 8

This is such a gorgeous little story - I just had to share.

"A grandmother is a woman who has no children of her own and therefore loves boys and girls of other people. Grandmothers have nothing to do; they only have to be there. If they take us for a walk they go slowly past beautiful leaves and caterpillars. They never say "come along quickly" or "hurry up for goodness sake". They are usually fat, but not too fat to tie up your shoelaces. They wear spectacles and sometimes take out their teeth. They can answer every question such as why dogs hate cats and why God is not married. When they read to us they dont leave anything out and the dont mind if it is the same story.
Everyone should try to have a grandmother. They are the only adults who always have plenty of time."

Wow this is post no. 199...................1 to go til the big 200.
