Being a Grandparent

Wednesday Jan 10 2007



By Vincent DiBianca

Bio
When I was a little kid, my picture of "grandpop" was of a little old guy with spectacles, stooped posture, a little paunch, a distinctive limp and false teeth. My grandfather often brought a smile and a wink with him, but he wasn't particularly able to relate to me. I recall we sometimes played checkers or cards; however, I don't remember doing anything special with him. We never went off exploring together (except for an occasional movie). He seemed more interested in assigning me chores (and imposing discipline) than teaching me values and how to think. Grandpa was a part of my life, but he was actually more of a babysitter than anything else.[Read More]
