THE SWEET MEMORIES OF OUR LIFE TIME!

We regularly converse with our grand child now 4 yrs+ staying in foreign land thru' video calls.  As some of our past experiences with our loved one were unique, I wish to share some of them in this Post. 

It was almost a year and half back, when he was nearing 3 yrs, these funny instances happened which are ever fresh in our memories.. 

### One day, when his grand mom asked him what he was doing, the boy said with a smile, "Am making a special cake for you!"

We were thrilled at his sweet talk but as he could not pronounce the word 'special' so easily at that point of time, the grand mom helped him out to say so with great difficulty but the next moment, he said with all pride, "I made it.. Come and eat!" so innocently when he couldn't speak the very word 'special!'

###On another day, my wife said with all seriousness, "Dear! Today, I'll teach you a Prayer. Repeat with me closing your eyes. Come on.. Say now!"

Thus instructing, she started, "Om! Jaya Jagadisha Hare, Swami Jaya Jagadisha Hare........"

No doubt the boy faithfully tried his best to say all that but finally when the grand mom said, "Say now.. Baba.." and paused for a while due to some cough to complete the saying there, '
Take care of me well!', the boy with all zeal continued, "Ba! Ba! Black sheep.. Have you any wool?......"

### My wife used to tell many Epic Stories to our grand child.

One day she said, "Dear! You know.. Little Krishna is very funny.. He used to eat lots of butter, play with children around, save all good people and help them. Once he ate even mud but when his mom........ So little Krishna is great and every one liked him. And here.. You are my little Krishna.. Who are you?"

The boy with great difficulty said,"Little Krishna!" but the next moment said, "But I can't eat mud.. Butter.. Daily I eat a bit. Not so much!" 





Finally, it was time for both of us to visit our grand child at his place and as such we planned visiting the place for a stay of one month. 

###I packed a number of toys and play items for the child in a separate check-in bag to handover to him directly at the Airport itself when they come to receive us. By bad luck the particular bag had not arrived with us and we were told that it would take a day or two to receive the same. When we came out, my daughter was at the airport with her family and the child ran to us calling aloud!

I was feeling bad for the boy as immediately I could not give his toys. As I was telling the matter to my daughter, the little boy instantly said, "Grand Pa! At home, I've a bag with me. You can take it!"

### During our stay there, on a day we were going in the car and the car stopped at a signal. I said to the boy, “Dear! This Road is called Jamboree! Can you repeat?”

The child instantly said nicely to the amusement of every one in the car, “Jamboree!”, paused a while and blurted out with a smile, “The next is February.. The next is March..”


At another stop, the signal was red for a little while.. The boy said, “Go.. Go.. It’s green!”

I got amused and asked, “Hey! Where's the green here?” The little one smilingly said with all softness pointing out the trees on the side, “Green!”

After a while at another signal when it was green, he suddenly shouted, “Stop!”


I got wondered and asked him, “Why? What for, dear?” He pointed out at the setting Sun in distance and said, “Red!” 

### One day, I was educating the child on the names of the rooms at home.

“Dear! This is the bed room and we sleep here. This is the dining room and we eat here. This i
s the living room, this is the rest room, and this.. Closet.” 

The child sincerely repeated all the names and as soon as we came out of the closet, he pulled the door tight saying "I closed it!”


### On a day, the boy was playing with me and was too fussy with me for a while. Suddenly in the middle of the play, he shouted aloud near to my ear.

I instantly screamed at him saying, “Ohh..! My ear is gone!”

The boy carefully looked at my ear from a side for a while and said with a big smile, ”It’s there!”


These funny experiences with our grand son forever remain in our heart as truly the sweetest memories of our life!

  1. Video calling is really a boon for these situation. Nowadays, this is every house's story that grandparents are talking to their grandchildren through video calling.

    I really enjoyed this one and every post you shared regarding the boy when he was at your place. It always bring smile to watch their sweet innocence.

  6. Such a lovely post. I did not get much time to spend with my grandfather as I grew up in the Middle East and he was in India and those days we had little or no technology :) ... but all these conversations make me wish I had. So happy for you. I now try to make sure my kids make memories with their grandparents.. And I read somewhere that the greatest joy of being a grandparent is to see a child grow up again but without the responsibility and attention required... Enjoy your moments! Thanks for sharing

    1. Very rightly said, Seena.. The parents no doubt have to be strict with their children but they should equally allow them for a fixed time to indulge all by themselves and here alone the grand parents play the very much required role towards their grand children.. Thank you for leaving such a nice and informative comment on the Post.. Best Wishes!

  7. Lovely post. Your grandson is such a darling. I can relate to your post very well as I spend most of my afternoon talking to my parents who tell me everything their grandson did. Me and my brother, we always complain that they were never so happy seeing us:( , maybe its different with grand kids..



    P.S: Your video link doesn't seem to be working. Please check.
