‘Being with Grandparents is the best time of my life!’
‘Grandparents‘ When you call just the word, an immediate smile of long memory trail leaves its essence behind to make you gleeful. This is one such innocent selfless relationship (of course mother-child too) in which we only make happy and lively memories. From taking a most crucial nod of approval from Baba (grand-dad) to Dadi (grand-mom) ke haath ka achaar, from getting the wish list come true to most relaxing oil head massage these are just few precious moments reminds us of their love – compassionate love.
I read about the blog challenge on Love Jatao To Our Grandparents on Blogadda my interest got piqued and I thought of participating and share the beautiful bond of unconditional love between my little missy and her Grandparents; she calls them dadi, baba.
When I see my 5 year old enjoying the most cherished moments with her grandparents; it makes me wonder how supreme almighty has created such wonderful relations of LOVE. Its a life-cycle – parents work hard to bring proper education and make their kids self sufficient; sacrificing many things/interests during that phase and when kids grow up they began a new life. Empty Nest as we call it; and this emptiness gets filled by the grandchildren. As they say – Grandchildren complete the Life cycle.
My little missy spends her 10 months of an year in the early anticipation of what she will do when reach her – Baba’s home. Being nuclear family we living ‘Life in a Metro’ with the roots & heart still attached to the family back home. I call these vacation days as ‘Independence Days’ for us, I get freedom from taking care of her, and she get’s independence from my due diligence.
‘When Grandparents enter the Room, Discipline goes out of Window’
….but that’s ONLY applicable for the grand daughter huh not for her Mother 😀 Spending time with the grandparents is undoubtedly the best time of life, their love is unconditional is it’s kind of contagious – spreads through them to you and everywhere around. I lost my grand parents to age related issues, but when I think about them each and every memory of unconditional love beams out like a SUNSHINE on a rainy gloomy day.
I am reliving my childhood days of magical stories, delicious sweets, special treats, loads of gifts, and ‘right-now’ calls through my kid & her love for Dadi – Baba.
Every Grand-Parents day she makes sure to call them and sing a song (which is any way a daily ritual – a call of 30 mins telling all about her day) with latest technology the special call have turned into Video call and sharing loads of pictures of cards she make for them. Just on our last visit she taught her granddad how to take a selfie 😉 smart generation huh.
This grandparents day we could not be with them but make sure to have a video call to let the distance melt away with love affection.
“I look forward to hear from you how would you celebrate Grandparents-Day. Do share a selfie with your grandparents on Sept. 10, 2017 on Twitter or Facebook with #LoveJatao & tag @blogadda to win a goodie from Parachute Advansed.”
Here is something beautiful for all of you to look at from #lovejatao and then plan a day with your grandparents in the best way possible. On a second note – Why wait for just ONE day; we can make everyday special for our grandparents – isn’t it?
