The birth of a child makes two people a parent and a few lucky people grandparents.
These special people are celebrated each year on Grandparents' Day, the first Sunday after Labor Day.
"I used to tell my kids that I didn't want to be a grandparent for a long time," said Karen Smith of Lehighton, a grandmother of three.
"My kids graduated and settled down pretty quickly. They didn't listen to me and I'm so glad that they didn't," she said, watching her grandson Benjamin Hanitch, 3, bop around the room during a Labor Day picnic.
