My youngest son and his wife made me a grandpa this morning when a healthy baby boy was born This is my first grandchild.

My son and I haven't spoken since my D in '05---but I'm hoping this child changes that. Time will tell.

I suddenly feel older today

If you see your ex with someone else--don't be jealous. Our parents taught us to give our old,used toys to the less fortunate.

CONGRATULATIONS Grandpa!
Grandchildren are truly a blessing! Hopefully this little Mr will be the bridge you and your son need to move forward.
Enjoy!

Sister--No I'm not there. I tore up my back the other day and my days have been limited to the couch.
I know that I'm missing a great time--but walking around crouched over like a 90 yr. old man still hurts

Oh, geez, sorry about your back WHG. That sucks! MrSister's back is easily injured and I know the agony he is in when it is bothering him. Don't wish that on anyone.

However, the G2Ger's probably would have built you a litter to carry you around with them!

Congrats, Grandpa. I hope your son will realize how much you love him, now that he knows what being a Dad feels like.

Sorry about your back - it would have been great to meet you at the G2G. Maybe next year.
