Your right.............I'm too young to be a grandfather (at least I like to think so).  However, life has a way of throwing a curve ball or two at you.

Being a young grandpa means you can spoil them right!

Congrats. That's a fine looking girl. The toughest part for me of being a grandfather is that our grandchildren don't live close enough for us to be a part of their daily lives. She will be a teen before you know it, as mine are. I regret that maybe I coulda/shoulda done more to be there more for them. Time is your most precious gift for her. But I've had two jobs and two adopted younger kids to raise myself. If you can possibly be there for her at every opportunity, the day in day out stuff of life, do it, you won't regret it.

Congrats Hobbes! I went through a similar situation in Nov. a shocker at first  but I'm easing in to the new role.

Hobbes, that is outstanding. Enjoy your youth as I was almost 70 when our twins arrived, and I can tell you that there are things I can't do that I want to do with them.

I'll be 48 this weekend, so not too young, but earlier than expected.  I'll have lots of time with her because I've  turned our upstairs into an apartment for them.  It's been quite the adjustment for us.  To be honest.....it's been stressful as hell.   I know the statistics on how these things go though, so I'll spend as much time with her as I can.

 

I had to go out of town for work a couple hours after her birth yesterday.  This is what my wife sends me today.  My grandfather used to say that he thought puppies were a lot cuter than human babies.  I could agree sometimes, but not this time 😁

Congrats!!!

 

I've been a grandfather for almost two decades now.  Never especially wanted to be a grandfather, but what I discovered is that you're gonna get old anyway, so why not enjoy one of the very best things about being old - grandchildren!
