Mommy Moments: Grandparents

Belated Grandparents Day to all the lolos and lolas (grandfathers and grandmothers) out there! The theme for this week’s Mommy Moments is “Grandparents.”

Justin was lucky to have seen both his grandparents on my side of the family. His lola on his father’s side died when Justin’s dad was still in college, while Justin’s lolo on his dad’s side died before he could catch a glimpse of his one and only grandchild.

When I gave birth to my son, it was my Nanay, Justin’s lola, who helped me take care of him during my maternity leave. When Nanay suffered a minor stroke in 2007, I could not call her anymore to look after my son because the stroke weakened the right side of her body.

So, Tatay, Justin’s lolo, came to the rescue! When I don’t have a yaya (babysitter) or when my husband and I had to leave the house, we would call Tatay for help, and he’ll be there in a jiffy. We never leave our son alone with just the yaya.

Because Justin is the youngest grandchild, he is well-loved by his grandparents. Justin also loves his grandparents dearly, especially Tatay. And who wouldn’t love a lolo who plays with his grandchild? His grandparents would always be there, too, when there are special occasions to celebrate, like Justin’s baptism, birthdays, and graduation.
