52:19 | Motherhood is: Grandparents |
Nana & Poppi, Memere & Pepere. If there are four people in this world Sophie loves, it’s her grandparents.
We are lucky enough to live in the same city as my parents, so Sophie has spent a lot of time with them growing up. Every morning when she wakes up she says Yaya?, (nana), Boppi?, (Poppi), and I have to tell her whether yes, or no, we will be seeing them today.
Memere & Pepere live in Edmonton, and we try to get together with them at least twice a year. Between Skype, our bi-annual visits, and every other Christmas, we’ve managed to see them quite a bit since Sophie was born. We were recently there for a visit, and Sophie had a great time getting to know them better.
I know I am grateful for my relationship with my grandparents, and I am even more grateful for my parents having a close relationship with Sophie. It is so different from your relationship with your own parents; a relationship of unconditional love, good-times, and possibly a little too much spoiling (in a good way).
