Grandmas and grandpas...opportunity knocks! Ideas during COVID
They say you have never loved so unconditionally as when that first grandchild arrives. Your capacity for forgiveness increases, you let go of your critical and judgmental side and you laugh joyously and frequently.
And now???? Now you have an opportunity to spend more quality time with your “grands” as they are called. You may have to learn how to be part of a group going live on Instagram. I barged in on my granddaughter and her friends one day when I figured it out. Oops…not the right time. She just looked at the screen and when someone asked, “What’s the matter?” her mouth dropped, and she just said, “It’s my grandmother.” Everyone immediately disappeared. Ha ha ha ha…….!
So while we are isolated let’s take advantage of an opportunity to spend more time playing with, talking with, singing with, messaging, facetiming. Let’s use the technology that’s available to us. Set up a schedule, or a show and tell, or a teaching session. Let’s present some options for every age.
Take some photos to share and don’t forget to look at the post downstream about killing two birds with one stone. I am using just initials and no names. That is your choice. Please do not use identifying names, phone numbers, emails, or locations.
Ready…..set……go gramps…….this was the first time he got to take a walk in the forest with his new grandson. Biggest smile I have ever seen on that loving face,
