"Cherish your grandpa! Many of us didn’t get this experience at all! You’re doing great! I’m not a wig wearer, but I’ll be sharing your info "
"God bless this man with 100 more years!! Grandpas are the best!! "

"Chile that smoke break was everything,"
The exciting moment comes barely two weeks after TUKO.co.ke reported that a recent study had revealed grandmothers are more connected to their grandchildren more than their own children.
The new study has confirmed that some grandmothers have a deeper bond with their grandchildren than their own children.
Grandmothers and grandchildren bond
The study was published by James Riling of Emory University in Atlanta in The Royal Society.
To effectively conduct the study, Riling's team picked and studied 50 grandmothers with at least one biological grandchild between three and 12 years old.
Riling's team started the study by measuring brain function as the grandmothers viewed photos of their grandchildren and unknown kids.
The participants were also asked to view pictures of the same-sex parents of the grandchildren and some of unknown adults.
Riling's team discovered that grandmothers viewing their grandchildren's photos activated part of their brains that involved emotional empathy and movement.
On the flip side, the researcher found out that grandmothers showed stronger activation in an area of the brain associated with cognitive empathy while viewing photos of their adult children.
