If I could, I would throw in some extra cherries and lots of sprinkles too, while differentiating grandparents from parents. That’s what grandparents are! Extra special people who bring everything extra in the lives of their grandkids – care, love, kisses, hugs and all the mush!
It was H’s granny’s (Nani) birthday yesterday. What a day to come into this world – International Women’s Day. H is usually excited about birthdays but since it was Nani’s first birthday with us, we were extra-excited! Obviously, she didn’t want anything grand so we limited it to a visit to her favourite place – Nariman Point, from where she could see the vast expanse of the Arabian Sea followed by a dinner. Besides bonding over stories, terrace-time, eating and naps etc, both H and Nani share a crazy love for water. Their eyes brighten up at the sight of the blue. While H wishes to become a Dolphin at the thought of the ocean, Nani can spend every evening near the sea shore, watching the waves and enjoying the cool breeze.
However, I wanted to do something special for our special woman, which also includes H. Here’s what her Birthday morning began with – her favourite girl and her favourite words – “I Love Nani.” The gift was easy to make, not expensive at all but very very very special. It went straight on Nani’s bedroom wall!
If you too are looking out for some cutesy gift ideas for grandparents, we have a list. Make your pick and make them feel extra special. After all, they are the best!
