I didn't know that there was a Grandparent's Day last Sunday. Perhaps it was only happening in the Philippines or in the US. But Grandparent's Day or not, my little girl was fortunate enough to spend some time to be with her grandparents, three months to be exact.
I am happy that she knows them and recognizes them, and would call them Lolo and Lola in her very Germanish accent of hers. Although she is not very close to them and would prefer that I prepare her milk or feed her, I am glad that her grandparents were able to see what she is like, came to know her and be able to take care of her too. This Sunday, they will be flying back to the Philippines and I know that things will be different. I know that Samantha will come looking for them, calling out their names and check out the room where they sleep.
I hope that Samantha will also get to know her grandparents on my side of the family. That way, she will also have a memory of them and will not be so shy and reserved when we visit them in the Philippines in the future.
