Um, er, grandkids will fill the "I need to have youngun's around me" niche quite nicely. Starting with another baby at 52 would mean I'd have to contend with a teen by 65 and I just don't think I'd have the ability to give that youngster the energy and experiences that only a loving and younger
father can provide. I could easlily provide the love, but I'm afraid that boy or girl, they'd wrestly me to the ground too easily and then, I'd be in trouble.
My kids couldn't take me down, even when they ganged up on me all at once, until the oldest was into her twenties, with two brothers and a younger sister not far behind, and even then, they still needed their Mom's help. I was king by right and my might. At 65, I'm afraid I just wouldn't cut the mustard. And so, I'll let them have the kids and I'll be the best grandpa ever.
