My 4-year-old calls my in-laws (above) by the Polish names for grandmother and grandfather, Babcia and Dzia Dzia. That’s pronounced like BOP-CHA and JA JA.
This is a column I wrote for the Barrow Journal. My in-laws are incredibly hard-working people who want to help their children in every way. This is something I want to do for my children, and ideally, I think every generation should help each other more than I usually see in this culture we live in.
