When the Grandparents Visit



My parents left today. After a two-week visit over the Easter holidays.

It's going to be a bit duller, a bit less chaotic with them going back home. The tikesters have gotten a bit spoiled with the attention and the fun that they've been having with KungKung and PoPo here. I've gotten a bit spoiled, too. I've scored some me time with them around: I let Josh and Zoë loose on my parents. Most of all, I'm going to miss having two extra people with whom I can unabashedly share my pride and delight at little things that Josh and Zoë do, something that I would be hard put to do with others for fear of boring them to tears.

It really warms my heart to see how much my parents enjoyed playing with Josh and Zoë, showing them off to their friends. It's equally wonderful to see how the tikesters just soaked up the extra loving attention. There is something very precious about the bond between grandparents and their grandchildren.


Very. Precious.

That picture is great!

I love what the kids call them "kungkung" and "popo." Is that traditional or something you came up with?
