12 things grandmas can't do

Grandmas can do some pretty amazing things. That's not too surprising, though, considering that they're mothers super-sized into grandmothers. Their super powers are practically a given.

There are, though, a few things grandmas can't do. At least 12, in fact.

things grandmas cannot do

ONE
Grandmas cannot send letters, cards, and boxes through the mail to grandkiddos without first plastering stickers all over the package.

TWO
Grandmas cannot avoid the words "precious" and "adorable" when conversing with other grandmothers.

THREE
Grandmas cannot keep their arms at their sides and out of "hug" position when greeting grandkiddos at the door. They're especially inept at this at the airport.

FOUR
Grandmas cannot stop pinning ideas for fun and food for grandchildren. At least not those grandmas on Pinterest, anyway.

FIVE
Grandmas cannot help but feel their hearts crack a bit when hearing of other grandmas who aren't allowed to see their grandchildren.

SIX
Grandmas cannot abide an empty cookie jar. If not for the sake of the grandkiddos, then for the sake of the grandpas.

SEVEN
Grandmas cannot pass the baby department in any retail store without taking a peek at an item. Or two. Or 10.

EIGHT
Grandmas cannot throw away greeting cards and letters from grandchildren.

NINE
Grandmas cannot throw away a child's artwork, either. Even when the artwork looks like this:

TEN
Grandmas cannot turn down an offer of a cup of imaginary tea or a piece of plastic pizza. At least not when it's offered by a child.

ELEVEN
Grandmas cannot turn down a request for sponsoring a grandchild in a walkathon or purchasing gift wrap or cookies for a child's fundraiser, either.

TWELVE
Grandmas cannot hug grandchildren hard enough, long enough, or often enough to keep her heart from missing them when they're far away.
