Growing up, our grandparents's house was the one place that never seemed to change. You could count on it to always be there and always be the best place to be pampered and loved by your grandparents. Here are nine things we always saw in our grandparent's house:
1. The best food.
I feel like it's a rule that grandparents have to buy the best food ever. Whenever I went to their house, my grandma would break out the best snacks ever, that I was never allowed to have at home. Also, grandmas are always the best cooks so you know you are going to be eating good when you go there.
2. So many china cabinets.
My mom has china cabinets too, but my grandparents had like six of them. And it's not like we ever got to use the dishes in it. I don't understand the concept of dishes as a decoration piece, but our grandparents were all about it. I don't know if it was just me but whenever I got a little too close to the china cabinet, my grandma would just stare at me intensely until I backed away.
3. Werther's originals.
These were everywhere. Obviously they were most commonly seen in grandma's purse, but they also made an appearance all over the house too. It wasn't guaranteed that it would be Werther's, but the one guarantee was that they were probably 30-year-old candies.
4. Cabinet of plastic bags.
It was probably located under the sink, but they never threw out a plastic bag. They probably even had a plastic bag filled with plastic bags. I do not judge this one because I do the exact same thing. I am pretty sure the only reason I do it is because my mom did, and she did because her mom did. It's a re-occurring cycle. I probably only ever re-use these bags once a month but it still pains me to throw them out, just in case.
5. Day time television.
The TV was always left on at my grandparents's house, and also it was in "the den" never the living room. It was also usually the news or Judge Judy, grandparents love Judge Judy.
But that's not all.
