I miss having a small one around to play with and buy for. It's a shocker when they do start though. Everything is just like their first word, first step, now, first girlfriend, first break up, etc... Lots of fun
Stacy,
I can't wait to see you with a grand baby..That child will be one of the worlds luckiest and be so loved it will make the world smile.

Hey Middie I have 11 grandchildren, and at first (so long ago) I was not real receptive to the idea. That being said, at 49yo (the oldest is 12) I'm still "young"(?) enough to enjoy doing things with them.

And while it doesn't hurt that I'm the worlds oldest adolescent, I now consider myself fortunate to be in this position. A good example is this past August, we loaded 3 of them up and took them to The Great Wolf Lodge (A great, family oriented place,BTW) and I was able to keep up with them stride for stride. It didn't take long for then to accept me as one of "their own". And now, I realize how lucky I really am.

Now, that being said, if your son decides he wants to be a musician, PM me ASAP!!

Being a grandparent is the best part. You take the cute little tyke places and everyone showers him with compliments while you sit back and smile wirh pride, thinking, "THAT'S MY GRANDSON!".

You can teach him to do all the improper stuff parents aren't allowed to and when he's a pain where the sun don't shine, you give him back and say, "YOUR SON is being a pain, take him!".

smoke king....you're 49 with a 12 year old grandkid?! Holy cow~! I bet everyone thinks you're the daddy!

Middie - talk about feeling like the kids are getting older...my 16 year old just started working his first job, at a Christmas Tree place. I swear it was just a couple of years ago that he was riding on dh's shoulders, to pick one out, saying "dis is da biggest one evah!"

at least he hasn't started dating yet!
