Today is National Grandparents Day, and my dear Grandmas are no longer with us. I was closest with my maternal Grandma and she's been gone now for more than eight years, and I miss her soft, white hair and her always-painted fingernails and her hugs, which she called "loves."
So sometimes I admit I think about adopting a grandma. To get me through the times when I miss my own. I mean, think about it? There are some incredibly cool options out there in the grandma department. So many wonderful shapes and sizes and features from which to choose.
Oh, but let's get one thing straight. NO ONE, no matter how cool her Scrabble skills or how dreamy her microwave reheats, can ever replace my Grandma. NO ONE. However, I am seeking a super special runner up for friendship and love and homemade cookies. Here are some traits I hope to find in my adopted grandma.
Hi. Will you be my Grandma?
