Enjoying grandparents on vacation
When I was a child grandparents were a fundamental part of childhood, as they participated directly in the growth of us children, spending a lot of time with us. The grandparents were a living part of the family unit. Today, however, often have to work many years before deservedly retired and then can devote their time to grandchildren in small part, the weekend mostly.

When I was a child grandparents were a fundamental part of childhood, as they participated directly in the growth of us children, spending a lot of time with us. The grandparents were a living part of the family unit. Today, however, often have to work many years before deservedly retired and then can devote their time to grandchildren in small part, the weekend mostly.
In our case, moreover, my parents do not live in my city but on the sea in Puglia, so my children can only see them occasionally.
For these reasons children have few opportunities to spend free time with them, but what better chance to see them in the summer months? August is a month in which they manage to fill their grandparents' vices!
If then the context with the grandparents is that of the holidays, of the sea and of the total carelessness ... How can they not adore them?
My parents love starsand with their grandchildren, I often have to ask them not to spoil them too much, to put rules ... But it is really a joy to see them together.
I also had a good relationship with my grandparents, although seeing them more often was less intense and more delayed over time, I have wonderful memories that I hope will be able to keep my children too. The relationships between grandparents and grandchildren are unique, because I believe that as people grow older they tend to go back to seeing things in a similar way to how they see a child's eyes: they are excited by their smallness, they share the pleasure of discovery and stories. I believe that grandparents for a child can be both playmates, an immense source of knowledge and a means to discover traditions and history of their origins.
On holiday, children can finally rediscover my land, their origins in a territory very different from what they usually live duringthe rest of the year: a different cuisine, a different landscape, new languages ​​and accents that are happy can bring in their cultural baggage in the future.
