A Welsh proverb states, "Perfect love sometimes does not come until the first grandchild." Grandparents often desire grandchildren from the moment their own children grow up, and can have a unique bond with their grandchildren. Doug Larson said, "Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap."
Each year in September is a special holiday to remember grandparents called "Grandparents Day." Much like Mother's or Father's Day, this is a day to spend time with, appreciate, and think about grandparents and how exceptional they are. A good quote for Grandparents Day is, "Being grandparents sufficiently removes us from the responsibilities so that we can be friends," said by Allan Frome.
