15 Differences We All Notice Between Our Parents And Grandmothers
We often think that our parents know everything as they lived longer than us and brought us into the world and raised us but we often forget that someone did the same to them, their parents and our grandparents. Everyone knows that their grandmother is the greatest friend they could ever ask for.
Not only will she listen to you and give you the best advice possible but she will also not judge you or make you feel bad for your failures. Our grandmothers will often do things differently than our parents.
Parents often have to involve playing and theatrics to feed their fussy children. Making the spoon look like a plane or talking while feeding kids are common tricks. But grandmothers know that their food is so delicious, the child will eat it anyway. They believe in flavor and not tricks to feed their grandchildren.
2The best gifts
Moms will usually give kids books or something to help them learn. Dads will usually get their kids toys and things to play with. But grandmothers are the only ones who get what kids truly want. They either give food or money to kids so they feel like adults. They give gifts that will make the child happy.
3Grandmas get the best toys
Moms are always practical and don’t want to indulge in the whims of the kids. They may say no to large toys that they know will eventually collect dust. Dads, on the other hand, let their inner child out and pick toys that they want too. Grandmas are the only ones who will buy you the most outlandish toys just because you want them.
4Grandmas love gardening
Most parents try to instill a love for the outdoors in their young kids. They will either take them to the park or to a theme park or to a nearby pond. But for grandmas, the outdoors can be found in their backyards. Most grandmas love gardening and they try to get their grandkids interested too.
5They overdress children
Moms are clearly the ones best suited to dress kids. They are young and have a sense of fashion. When dads try to dress kids it’s a disaster because they don’t know what looks good. But when grandmothers dress their grandkids, it’s a whole other deal. They feel that every kid needs three layers of clothing so they don’t fall sick, even if it’s not that cold.
