My grandparents are coming to live with us next week and I am super excited about it. I had a great time with my grandma and grandpa, last time we visited India and I have been telling them to visit us since then. But for some reasons they were not able to come. Last night dad came back home and told grandma called him to say, they would be coming to live with us in London for a month. Isn’t that great news!
I love living with grandma and grandpa; they love me so much that they do whatever I tell them to do. Today morning I was talking with mumma and I asked what I can do with grandma and grandpa when they visit us. She told me there are many things we can do together – we can go for morning walk, share secrets, do homework together, listen stories and even visit some places. She also said that having grandparents is very important. Just as mumma and dadda have significant roles in a child’s life; grandparents also have an important role to play.
She said being elders they provide us all kinds of support and advice whenever required. Mumma said when I was very small they can to live with us and they took very good care of me. Grandma helped mumma feed me, take care of me when I was sick and she would even read me stories every night. Grandpa would take me out for a walk every morning. Once I had a bad cold and mumma was very confused about what to do. Grandma told her about some home remedies to cure cold. She tried them and I was back to normal within two days.
Mumma says, grandparents are very experienced, so we should learn from them. They have seen the world and handled many situations, so they can help us solve our problems. Grandparents can become our friends, mentors or even caregivers when required. But we should also take care of them whenever required. Being old, they are fragile and they need our support. They might even fall ill and need our care. So we should look after them, just the way they care for us when we need them.
I want my grandparents to live with me forever! There are many things that I want to do with them and there are many places I want to take them to. But mumma says, they won’t be able to stay with us forever. Grandpa has his work back in India and grandma has other people to look after. But I will make sure I enjoy with them a lot and make many memories. Once they go back, I will visit them whenever possible!
I want to buy some special gifts for my grandparents, so I have asked mumma to take me to the gift shop! I am waiting eagerly for their arrival; hope the day comes soon!
