What does “that holiday morning feeling” mean to you?
Remember that feeling when you were very young- the anticipation and excitement of unwrapping a holiday present? Ok, so it may have been a long time ago (!) but watching a grandchild experience that same event brings back all those wonderful memories that we hold so dear to our hearts. And, prior to the actual holidays, a grandparent can only imagine all those thoughts of excitement running through a child’s head- just thinking about presents, and possibly listening closely in hopes of hearing footsteps on the roof!
So what if it’s only November… the holidays are coming up and we have to plan ahead. Are you stressing about what to get someone in your family? Or maybe are you constantly getting phone calls from your children for one of your classic recipes they want to recreate?
Grandparents have a role in the lives of their grandchildren, but what exactly is that role? Let your adult children take the lead and discuss your expectations with them.
Becoming a grandparent changes everything. Coupled with incomparable joy is uncertainty about where you fit in. Your role — not always appreciated by society — is vitally important in shaping a grandchild’s life. At the end of the day, you and the parents want what’s best for the child. But, as you may discover you don’t always share the same ideology, and you must take a step back and understand that you’ve entered their world, sometimes feeling like a foreign ambassador. And, what you may really need is a handbook for diplomacy!
