The joys of having grandparents at home

Our grandparents give us joy in many aspects and fill our life with different colors. They love us and take trouble for us in various matters. I love having grandparents at home because they take care in the absence of our parents.

Grandparents love their grandchildren dearly and show are sometimes over compassionate. When the parents reprimand their children for wrong actions, the grandparents end the ordeal. They need someone who loves them genuinely and children are always innocent to share their joys and sadness. The children never feel lonely if grandparents accompany them at every point of life when parents are busy.

My grandparents at home

My parents always respect the elders at home and even outdoors. They always advice us that we should also respect the elders because they are wiser than us. My grandparents lived in a lonely area in a village where even proper water facility was not available and often power failure took place. So, my parents decided to bring them to our place so that proper we can take proper care of them.

Living happily with grandparents

Now, my grandparents live with us and we all are living happily in our home. Grandma always helps my mother in the kitchen and during the early morning hours, she even prepares breakfast for us. She always prepares us our favorite food and packs lunch boxes for our school. Daily, she prepares variety of food for us that we love to eat in school. My parents both go out to work and hence when I return home, my grandparents accompany us. Grandpa takes us to a park nearby and carefully supervises us when we play slides, swings or see saws. He even plays catch ball with us so that it is a good exercise to our body and mind.

Grandparents as friends

When my grandparents did not live with us, we felt lonely as everybody in our apartment are always busy with their household chores. So, I thought that somebody should live with us who always interacts with us and tells us some interesting facts and stories. So, my grandparents are always chatting with us and we really become engrossed when we listen to their stories.

The joys that our grandparents give us

Grandma is an expert cook and she has cooked many of my favorite dishes such as idlis, dosas, appam, putt, shakre pongal, etc. On every Sunday, mother and my grandmother are able to cook special food for us. My grandparents and parents always love harmoniously and never fight with each other. Even if they are not in agreement with each other for certain matters, they sit down and patiently discuss certain issues. So, we always feel peaceful living in our house. Sometimes I fight with my younger sister and when my parents are not at home, my grandparents solve our problems by interacting properly with both of us. Whenever they bring any fruit from the market, my grandma divided them equally and shares with us.

Special incidences with grandparents

Last time, when my parents were away for a wedding in Delhi, I stayed with my grandparents for three or four days. My grandparents took special care of us and they even dressed a bandage around my knees when I fell down. My sister had a toothache and they even applied a gel to the tooth. So, from that day onward I became even closer to them.
