25 Times Our Seniors Proved They Are the Best Humans Ever

The average age for becoming a first-time grandparent is 50, and around 18% of the entire world population are grandpas and grandmas. When we think about our own nannas and papas, we often imagine them sneaking us some change and, somehow, always asking us, “Have you eaten, dear?”

To honor these special folks, without whom we wouldn’t be here today, Bright Side wants to dedicate this article to our grandmoms and grandpas — we love you dearly.
