    Cute infographic!

    My Nonnie was notorious for all, but #4 made me smile. You couldn't leave her house without a home cooked something in your tummy.

    In contrast, #4 is probably what I'm least notorious for. However, I do love to order out/pick up for them :)

    Of course I look at this about myself! I'm great with eight of the rules, but no way all know I do not cook!!!
    And #10 I purposely don't do.....I love to buy and wrap gifts! The older girls also love a mall visit and the Littles a trip to Target! Their other gmas send money; my mom always sent money. MY grandma bought and wrapped I do that for B'days and Christmas......and shop with them for 1/2 birthdays! (See how I sneak the spoiling in!? LOL)

    What a cute poster! Unfortunately for me (and for them) I didn't get to have that kind of relationship with my own grandparents -- it is certainly why having a close relationship with Amara is so important to me. I think she would say I am good at all 10 rules with a gold star for hugging!

    My Granny was famous for all your listed reasons and maybe a few more. I can only hope some of my many now-grown grandchildren remember at least a few times when I was even half as good a grandmother as she was.

    My grandma was notorious for number 4. She always fixed our favorites when we visited. I tend to do the same for Shylee!

    My grandmas both excelled in #1. I think I'm good at #1 and #6.

    I would have to say numbers 4, 8 and 10 for both of my grandmothers. I'm notorious for number 3 and my husband is number 9!

    Both of my grandmothers loved us unconditionally but I probably have fonder memories of my dad's mom. My mom's mom lived with us and was a melancholy soul. My dad's mother was a character. She loved to cook for us and man could she cook! I remember playing Yahtzee with her at the kitchen counter and when I won she circled a mark on the score sheet and said I could show my friends her tears over losing. =)

    Cookies! We always got a cookie before we left Grandma's. And we always said "Please" when we asked for them and "Thank you" when we got them. We didn't know we were getting schooled in manners, but we were. Your post brought back memories of Grandma's cookie jar, and I just realized that that jar is now in my nieces home after residing in my Mother's until she passed ten years ago. Thank you.

    My Granny was an awesome storyteller, so I would say number 7. I must also include number 2 because her oatmeal cookies were incomparable.

    I'm definitely shooting to be best at number 1. And I always bake something fresh when the princesses come to call.
