As you're probably aware, Grandparents Day is right around the corner (on Sunday, September 9, to be exact). The reason why you're probably aware of the upcoming holiday is that your kid has likely brought home a handmade grandparent-centric gift from school this week — and now it's your turn. Finding an appropriate card shouldn't be too tough, but what will you write inside? Some grandparents are more dry and witty than warm and fuzzy, after all. So what are some funny things to write in a Grandparents Day card?
Because the truth is, while grandparents have a reputation for being wholesome and indulgent and kindly and comforting, there are plenty of grandmas and grandparents out there who have a little bit more of an edge... or at least an appreciation for the sarcastic side of life. And honestly, a grandparent with a sense of humor is the best kind of all. When kids get cranky, the best grandparents know how to diffuse the situation with a "turn that frown upside down" kind of attitude — and when parents get stressed, they know how to make things seem a little less dire by sharing a funny anecdote about "that time when you were in second grade and you rode your bicycle right into a brick wall" (or some other, similar disaster that turned out just fine).
And sure, sometimes grandparents can drive you up the wall (like every time they babysit and let your kids stay up eating cookies hours past their bedtime). But Grandparents Day is about celebrating all the amazing things they do, and laughing at the less-than-amazing stuff. That's just what the parent/grandparent relationship is all about... and these quotes sum it up perfectly.
