What To Do About Grandma
This grandma snores so loud she makes earthquakes!
When grandma goes to sleep at night, I shut all the windows and doors. I put cotton in my ears because, well, my grandma snores.
She snores so loud it jiggles the house and makes the shutters shake. One time our neighbors ran out screaming – they thought there was an earthquake.
Another time she snored so loud our ears and noses bled. Now everyone runs for cover when my grandma goes to bed.
Yes, grandma’s known for snoring. She’s known all over town. Even power saws and freight trains tell my grandma to pipe down.
She’s louder than a motor bike or a great big thunder clap. Oh dear! Oh no! I’ve got to go! It’s time for grandma’s nap!
