Do you find yourself at an imaginary tea party? What about slaying a dragon with a cardboard sword? Rolling down a hill at high speed? Listening to Justin Bieber? Laughing repeatedly at knock-knock jokes? How about umpiring a wiffle-ball game?

If you answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, and you are not under the age of 14 — you may be a grandparent.

If you are a grandparent and have found yourself doing something you never thought you would, we want to see it. Take or upload a picture of yourself (or your parent or your grandparent) caught in the act on Instagram, (Don’t know how to use Instagram? Click here.) Be sure to tag it with #thingsgrandsdo.  If we like it, we’ll showcase it on our website and tweet our favorites.

Well, what are you waiting for? Get to it.

Be epic. Be fun. Be brave. After all, you’re a grandparent … let the adventures begin!
