Congrats, Grannie! Can I call you Grannie? No? Okay then, Constance.

Thanks, everyone.
Kim and I have 4 children between us. My 2 girls both had boys, one of which we raised after his mother died. Kim's daughter has 2 girls, and his (our) son had a boy and a girl years ago, in a disastrous marriage that left him hurt and bitter.
He still sees those kids occasionally, but they live a long way away from him, and his ex stirs all kinds of **** every time he contacts them.

That's one thing that makes this baby so special. This sweet young woman has changed Chris's whole attitude about life. He's a very happy man.

And yes, Banana Brain, you can call me Grannie...or Grandma Connie, like Bucky said.
