Today is grandparent’s day at our school, and, as always, I am fascinated by the differences in the grandparents. Some seem really old and confused-losing their granddaughters between classes and needing bathroom breaks every 20 minutes or so. Some can’t even walk the full length of the hallway between the front door and the classrooms. Then there are the anorexic looking grandparents, ladies who think they need to maintain a svelte figure. Some are wearing giant hats. Some are quite alert and fit and go barreling down the halls like a regular parent. As my husband says; ‘shut up plantress, those grandparents are starting to look just like us!” except he didn’t say shut up because we don’t use that word in our house. I got a nose full of moth balls last time I stuck my head out into the hall!
