Grandfather at 47 – Does that make me old?
Last night, my eldest daughter and her hubby made me a Grandfather for the first time! Which is all very exciting but which launched me into a series of existential crises – oh my god! Am I really that old already? Now that I’m a grandfather, do I have to start acting like one? Or is this just an opportunity to pay back my daughter for all the ” fun, stress, complications, and agonizing” that were involved in raising her? After a brief period of introspection, and some time spent holding the little guy, I decided that all that doesn’t matter and that it doesn’t matter how old I am. All I’m going to concentrate on is spoiling the heck out of my Grandson Jack!
Welcome to the world, Grandson! And here’s to all the years that I will get to spend getting to know you!
