Now baby boomers are retiring they notice their children are having their own children and these new folks are called grandchildren.
Nothing wrong with that or does it just make you feel old?
We all look for the family traits and how they resemble other members of the family but deep down we know they are all new individual people who will have their own lives.
Sometime we forget that they don’t fully understand how the world is and they see it through their young and innocent minds.
Being a grandparent is sometimes easier than being a parent because older people have less inhabitations than when they were first parents. Grandparents also seem to have more time, or is that because they are not working?
The title granddad and grandmother does have an air to it but deep down we know it’s old dad and old mother and we have to fight that thought and turn it around to wise and respected grandparents. We all have a lot of knowledge to pass on, if only we could remember it all.
Playing with the grandchildren is tricky to start with as children have imaginations and make connections very quickly in ways our disciplined brains struggle to keep up with. So sometimes it’s best to let them lead, if you don’t read them they will quickly find you boring and leave you with your Zimmer frame.
After a good day with the grandkids, that’s when you hand them back relieved and tired to their mums and dads, you wonder where all of their energy comes from and how they can sleep all night without waking up.
So whether we like it or not us baby boomers have just got to get on with it.
No need to worry about those bedtime stories when they come for the sleepover get a kindle fire and they can read to you!!
