Being a grandparent is an opportunity to be awesome. You’ve lived a good chunk of time and collected many life lessons–and if you’ve lived an interesting life, many of these lessons won’t be “PG.” As your grandchildren start to figure out life, it’s your chance–your DUTY–to tell it like it is. Unlike when you were a parent, you don’t need to worry about setting an example. Go nuts!
If we’re all lucky enough to become grandparents one day, we should all be as funny as these grandmas.
