In life, there are many people who contribute to the way we grow and how we shape our attitude to life. Although the most important may be our Mum and Dad, there are plenty of others who have a huge part to play, which we can sometimes forget about as we get older, and these are our grandparents.
Although relationships we have with our grandparents can vary from person to person, most of us have those joyful memories of our granny sneaking us into the sweet shop even when our mum very clearly said no.
Anyway, I think its time we rejoice in all the weird and wonderful things our grandparents have brought to our lives and why they are just so damn great.
-The way Grandparents think broken biscuits have zero calories, of course?
-How my Granddad has to wear a bib every time he eats in order to avoid any spillage..
-The fact I would spend 25 minutes deciding on what film to watch with my Granny only to look over 5 minutes in and see her fast asleep.
-How my Granddad taught me at the age of 9 his favourite catch phrase ‘I’ll drink to that!’
-And finally, I can’t imagine my childhood without the bizarre stories of ‘what life was like when they were young’ even if that was the thirteenth time I had heard that story.
Growing up, this relationship may get weaker due to busy schedules or old age, but we should never forgot the most exciting times of our childhoods were probably spent with our grandparents.
Our elders should be treated with the love and respect they deserve for all they have done for us throught the years, and that’s exactly what we at Nudgu strive to do.
