How to Be the Perfect Grandma

How to Be the Perfect Grandma Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Becoming a grandma is like getting a subpoena. You don't expect it. You don't know how to respond. You know you must be mature and accept it. Being a grandma, though, is as close as many of us ever get to perfection. Filled with snappy one-liners followed by humorous anecdotes, this is the perfect gift book to keep grandma laughing.

As author Bryna Nelson Paston says, We have a window of opportunity as grandparents, usually five years, or maybe more if you're lucky. So you have to make your move fast and decisively. Your kids and their spouses will intrude, interrupt, and interfere. But persevere. Circumvent them, do exactly what you want, and lie with dignity, I might add. Whatever it takes. Promise anything, but get the kid.

Synopsis:

A humorous anecdotal gift book for grandmothers, grandmothers-to-be, or anyone who has a grandmother

Synopsis:

Becoming a grandmother is not one of life's free choices. You don't expect it, and you don't quite know how to respond.

Synopsis:

The Ultimate Rules for Grandma Success

Becoming a grandmother is not one of life's free choices. You can pick your pet, your alma mater, and your spouse, but when and where you become a grandma is entirely up to your kids. You don't expect it, and you don't quite know how to respond.

Being a grandma, though, is as close as you may ever get to perfection. So learn the rules and secure your spot as one of the most important parts of your grandchildren's lives.
