Two weeks ago we introduced Elisabeth, our French community manager. Here she shares a post about grandparents.
The earliest memories I have of my grandparents revolve around fun and candy! They picked me up from school, took me on long weekends and invited me to stay with them during the summer. My grandmother taught me to ride a bike and my grandfather told stories so that we’d fall asleep.
These unforgettable family moments are treasured our whole lives. What's better than being pampered by your grandmother, or taking a walk along the beach on Grandpa’s shoulders?
Then we grow up. We have our own children, and our parents become grandparents to our own beloved little ones.
Although it's no longer common to find several generations living under the same roof, there's a special bond between grandparent and grandchild. My daughter is fortunate to grow up with the constant presence of her paternal grandparents, who live nearby. Although her maternal grandparents live far away, the link between them is just as strong with the help of technology. In this Internet era, my 4-year- old daughter has a daily video call with her grandmother.
My maternal grandmother celebrated her 88th birthday yesterday, and I wish her a happy birthday! MyHeritage is a great platform for keeping in touch with the family, you will be notified of important events, and can also send greetings or schedule a party!
Are you a grandparent? How do you describe the relationship between a grandparent and grandchildren?
Are you a parent? Is the relationship you had with your grandparents different from the one your children have with their grandparents?
Are you a grandchild? Describe your relationship with your grandparents, whether they live around the corner or around the world.
Let us know how you stay in touch with today's technology, if you live far away!
