“My Granny is the best.”
The best Grannys are the ones who make a special trip just to bring the children’s favorite type of apples (honey crisp). The best Grannys know the grandchildrens’ sizes, because they have washed their clothes. The best Grannys know the grandchildrens’ interests, because they have attended karate performances, horse shows, spelling bees and school plays. The best Grannys treat all the children with equal love but individualized affection. The best Grannys value time with grandchildren over stuff for grandchildren. The best Grannys are few and far between in this age of long distance families. The best Grannys have the very luckiest grandchildren.
