Grandparents are just awesome people!
I am so thrilled that my kids still have both sets of grandparents and they love them very much. The feeling is mutual. When it's a good relationship, it must be one of the most satisfying and wonderful of human relationships , I reckon. Grandies are just The Most Special People!
I'll let you in on a secret....I've always thought that it would be very cool to be a grandie (in good time of course!) but there was that essential 'first step' that I had to undertake first...
Grandies are allowed to spoil you...they can love you to bits and then love you some more...they allow you eat all sorts of yummy food like ice cream and chocolate and chips and they are forever giving you treats...like Grandpa's famous curry! WOW! My dad is just THE BEST curry maker I know. Today, we could smell Grandpa cooking his curry as we drove towards their home...the fragrance wafted all around the neighbourhood...EVERYONE knows when Grandpa cooks his curry! And whenever there is a potluck dinner, without fail, that is the dish that people will ask Grandpa to cook. We felt so special to be going for dinner, and our tummies growled in anticipation as we savoured the delicious aromas...I wish I could attach an "olfactory clip" - kinda like a video clip I guess. But for now, you'll just have to imagine. And Grandpa even cooked extra so we could bring some home for lunch tomorrow!
Grandparents are WONDERFUL!
