    I Made It Into That Circle Twice

    My son did all the work.  Actually, probably his wife had more to do with it but I have a grandson and a granddaughter.  Love them both.

    I Feel Like I'm The Only One Who Ever Exerienced This

    There are other grandfathers, I know it. But nothing is quite like MY pride that I feel to hold my perfect, brand new first grandchild and smell that new baby smell. Something primal about it, success at an animal level to be continuing my genes.  I feel like I'm the only one...
