News flash: Grandparents still spoiling kids
The Wall Street Journal (Oct 25, 2010) says grandparents are raining money on their grandkids—recession or not.
In 2009 (OK, not really as bad yet) they spent $52 billion. This according to Grandparents.com.
Yes, the old…duffers...whoa, wait, the average age to become a grandparent is 50!
Half of all grandparents have contributed to their grandkids’ education.
Grandparents are 26% of movie audiences.
All four Rolling Stones are grandparents.
OK—that one didn’t have to be in there.
The one thing my own child has not done is bring me a grandchild—under the circumstances, this is fine.
