Quotable Sunday - #10


Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni hosts Quotable Sunday each week. This week I have decided to do quotes about grandparents due to the fact that I have been spending so much time with them.

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

They say genes skip generations. Maybe that's why grandparents find their grandchildren so likeable. ~Joan McIntosh

No cowboy was ever faster on the draw than a grandparent pulling a baby picture out of a wallet. ~Author Unknown


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

A grandmother pretends she doesn't know who you are on Halloween. ~Erma Bombeck

When grandparents enter the door, discipline flies out the window. ~Ogden Nash

I don't intentionally spoil my grandkids. It's just that correcting them often takes more energy than I have left. ~Gene Perret

I'm a grandma, and it's so true, lol.
