English term or phrase:bouncing grandchildren on their knees
Commedia teatrale canadese. dialogo tra due amici. Uno dei due racconta della madre dopo essere stata lasciata dal marito.
She was depressed most of the time. You see, she assumed that my father and she would grow old together and spend their golden years bouncing grandchildren on their knees.
La mia proposta:
Era quasi sempre depressa. Vedi, immaginava che lei e mio padre sarebbero invecchiati insieme e avrebbero trascorso gli anni d’oro facendo saltellare i nipotini sulle ginocchia.
