Ever wonder who's working behind the scenes at Grandparents.com? Read on to see who we are and what we do ... and where our passion for grandparenting comes from.
"When I was younger, my siblings, cousins and I used to have sleepovers at our Grandma Sylvia and Grandpa Joe's house. I think about that all the time—the 50's-style bed we used to sleep in at their house is in my house now!"
"In college, my grandmother sent me $2.00 every week that she said was to be used for a 'hamburger, not cigarettes or beer."
"When my brother and I were young kids, our Italian grandmother always used to say rather forcefully, 'Capisci?' (pronounced 'capeesh'). We had no idea what it meant, but we'd just answer back meekly, 'Capisci.' I now know it means 'understand?' and our response was appropriate."
"Do your best to live in the moment. Your worries will still be there in the morning."
"Don't waste a minute of your life settling. Chase your dreams with intensity and patience."
"In the words of Zora Neale Hurston, 'Those that don't have it, can't show it. Those that have it, can't hide it.'"
"When I was little, my grandfather used to give the most wonderful hugs which we called 'bear hugs'. He would wrap me in his arms and squeeze as hard as he could (or so I thought) and I would hug like the dickens back, trying to impress him. Those bear hugs were the best—they made me feel incredibly safe and loved, and super tough."
"You learn something new every day. Also, 'Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer' is a terrible song."
