Never have children, only grandchildren.
~Gore Vidal

Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. One moment you're just a mother The next you are all-wise and prehistoric.

Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.

Grandmother - a wonderful mother with lots of practice.

~Author Unknown

but young on the inside.
~Author Unknown

One of the most powerful handclasps is that of a new grandbaby around the finger of a grandfather.
~Joy Hargrove

It's amazing how grandparents seem so young once you become one.
~Author Unknown

************************************************** ***********

If your baby is "beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule, burps on demand, and is an angel all the time"...

~Author Unknown

What is it about grandparents that is so lovely?
I'd like to say that grandparents are God's gifts to children.
And if they can but see, hear and feel what their grandparents have to give,
they can mature at a fast rate.
~Bill Cosby

it's the knowledge that he's married to a grandmother.
