When did I get to be the grandmother

They started taking over. Giving directions. Making decisions. Making fun of my driving. They walked slow and waited for me to to go up and down the stairs. They waited on me. It was awful. Not that they did it, but that suddenly it seemed like the natural thing to do. I felt like, well, like an old elephant. Then I realized...I am an old elephant.

Thats Matriarch, not elephant Barb.

You are the wise one, the elder, and it is the natural thing to do.

Never forget, the first part of Grandmother is "Grand".

"...having more importance than others: Foremost..."

"...marked by a regal form and dignity..."

Thats you!
