Happy Grandparents’ Day! 👴🏼👵🏼 💕
Wise humans cuddly as a bear,
with heaps of fun stories to share.
They say yes when parents say no,
and give warmth, kindness, and love to go.
Grandparents are indeed the best. To most children, grandma and grandpa are our second parents, our first friends, and our biggest fans. They are the ones who spoil us rotten, love us unconditionally, and always know how to make us laugh. Grandparents are forever special, but this National Grandparents’ Day, let’s visit 5 reasons that make grandparents GRAND!
Before we get started, Grandparents’ Day or not, don’t forget to hug your grandparents, and remind them how much you love them.
Remember their stories that put you to bed when you were a child. Feeling nostalgic, right? From embarrassing stories about your parents, and interesting lores about our family history and ancestors, to fictional stories they make on the go, grandparents always tell the best stories.
2. They are adorable with technology
If you haven’t tried to teach your grandparents how to use a smartphone, access social media, or check their email, you are missing out! They make exceptional buddies for cute Instagram filters. So if your grandparents are trying to get the grips with technology, help them out. Don’t forget to be calm and patient. And most importantly, have fun with it.
3. They are great listeners
They have always listened to you intently from the moment you could speak. From listening to your ABCs with pride in their eyes to listening to your latest interests and achievements as adults, they listen to it all with profound patience and love. And never stop to cheer you on!
4. They love to feed you
“You look so thin, don’t you eat anything?” said every grandparent ever! Cookies and laddoos for breakfast, halwa for lunch, gulab jamuns and ice cream for dinner…they have a constant supply of delicious food. It’s like they have vowed to never see your plate empty; don’t be surprised if you have to be rolled out of their house!
5. They give great advice
Being around for so long has surely taught them a thing or two and they know the best for a good reason. They only want the best for you and are always willing to help you with their words of wisdom. Life, money, relationships, and everything in between – they will always have advice for you!
Grandparents will never stop being amazing and we will never stop being amazed by them.
