Moms are great. They really are. But sometimes you need someone different. Ok, most of the time. I go to my grandma’s. You may go to your grandma’s too.

Here are some reasons why I think grandmas are better than moms.

Sugar: Ahma (that’s what I call my grandma) always has candy for me, but Mommy makes me eat healthy stuff like corn and carrots.

Bedtime: Mommy tries to get me in bed by 8:00. Ahma tries to get me in bed by 10:00.

Fun: Moms are pretty fun ... but grandmas are a lot more fun.

Television: Mommy says no TV on school days, but Ahma says otherwise.

iPhone: Mommy won’t let me play on hers (though if I knew her passcode I would anyway), but Ahma always has games ready for me and my little sister to play.

Toys: Ahma has lots of toys for me, but Mommy doesn’t have as many.

Rules: Mommy has lots of rules, but Ahma doesn’t have that many.

Those are my reasons that grandmas can be a lot better than moms -- and no offense to moms out there. You’ll be a grandma someday.

The moms at The Stir desperately needed a day off so we decided to let our kids help us write The Stir today -- find out more about them in their blogger profiles and see what they are writing about at Kids Takeover. Happy April Fools! :)
