yer too young to be a grandpa fyi....
Sort of. . . but I guess it was kind of planned? Let me explain...
I got married at a young age and wanted kids when I was young. I found the perfect woman. She already had a 20 month old son and his "sperm donor" (as we call him) left the two of them when he was 18 months old. So, I took the role of Dad. Then we had twins shortly after committing our lives together.
The reason I wanted to do this was to be young WITH my kids and do fun stuff while they were growing up. I also wanted them to have a child of their own when they settled with a loved one. I wanted to be a Grandfather!
I never knew ANY of my Grandparents at all. All but one had passed before I was born and the remaining one died before I was a year old. Thus, I never knew what a Grandparent was.
So, my little girl is making my dream come true, although a bit early and unplanned for her, we've done ALL we can to make sure she and the baby are going to be taken care of. Her Beau is active in the pregnancy and fully intends to be here for the child. They really wanted to wait another 4 years but, accidents happen.
The baby is yet to be born and 100% spoiled already. (So is her Mom) We cannot wait for the arrival and the excitement continues to grow.
To answer you staypuff, yes, at 44 yrs old, I am too young to be a grampy but I'll be the BEST Grampy there ever was!
(Well, I hope so anyway!!!)
Thanks and I mean it! It really is a slap in the face with reality when your Baby Girl comes home crying and says she is pregnant. Poor child was devastated at first but we talked her down and hugged her tight. Now she's all sorts of excited and ready for being a Mom.
