Grandparents (September 28, 2012)
As noted earlier, there are so many great things that I've experienced in being a dad. One of the coolest, and one that new parents perhaps think the least about prior to the birth of their children, is seeing the grandparent-child and great-grandparent-child relationship.
My wife and I have had the pleasure over the last few weeks of having her parents and my parents visit, and during these visits, I became more aware than ever of how special it is to see someone else love your child the way that you do.
It gives us a chance to see for ourselves how much our parents loved us as children.
Seeing such love is heartwarming and symbolizes how a baby can bring people together and give them something incredible to share...and even remind them of something incredible that they once shared.
So I guess the point of all of this is to remind everyone to let your parents be a part of your child's life. You never know how long you have, and you never know how it will bring everyone closer.
Here's a picture of my mother with my daughter, demonstrating the love that i witnesses from both my wife's family and my family during the month of September.
Take care, everyone!
