A third grade teacher asked her class “what is a grandparent?”
The 8-year-old students took no time to respond with some of the most heartwarming and hilarious answers we’ve ever read.
Children really have a magnificent view of the world!
1- Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own. They like other people’s.
2- A grandfather is a man and a grandmother is a lady.
3- Grandparents don’t have to do anything except be there when we come to see them. They are so old, they shouldn’t play hard or run. It is good if they drive us to the shops and give us money.
4- When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.
5- They show us and talk to us about the colours of the flowers and also why we shouldn’t step on “cracks”.
6- They don’t say, “Hurry up.”
7- Usually, grandmothers are fat but not too fat to tie your shoes.
8- They wear glasses and funny underwear.
9- They can take their teeth and gums out.
10- Grandparents don’t have to be smart.
11- They have to answer questions like “Why isn’t God married?” and “How come dogs chase cats?”
12- When they read to us, they don’t skip. They don’t mind if we ask for the same story over again.
13- Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have television because they are the only grownups who like to spend time with us.
14- They know we should have a snack time before bed time, and they say prayers with us and kiss us even when we’ve acted bad.
15- Grandpa is the smartest man on earth. He teaches me good things, but I don’t get to see him enough to get as smart as him.
16- It’s funny when they bend over; you hear gas leaks, and they blame their dog.
17- Grandma, she lives at the airport, and when we want her we just go and get her. Then when she’s done having her visit, we take her back to the airport.

So when a cute little guy in a karate uniform was asked about his 100-year-old “MamMa,” and why God created her, he had some interesting things to say! First, he simply cannot believe how old she is. Then, as you might expect, his answer to the question is sweet and adorable – get ready to say “Awwwww…”
While this little boy has his own reasons for why God created grandmas and why they’re so wonderful, there’s actual science behind why grandmothers are the best. Psychology Today explains that grandmothers are calmer than they were when they were parents.
That’s why you see grandmas letting things slide off their shoulders when their grandchildren do something unruly – but she would’ve lashed out in an instant if her child did the same back in the day. Additionally, grandmothers don’t have to worry about actually parenting. They get to take a sidestep from the stress and focus on the fun parts of raising children! Now it makes sense why grandmothers are the best. They are allowed to be the “cool” one while never really having to discipline!
So when the film crew turned their attention on this little boy and asked why God created Grandmas, his response was too good. He made some excellent points, and his reasoning was spotless! Take a peek at this adorable moment of honesty in the video below. Grandmothers are the best and this little guy knows it. We couldn’t agree more!
