I have as of yesterday afternoon progressed from step dad to 6 people to step granddad to one little person. I am still to marry our lass and I sometimes feel uncomfortable at the thought because their dad (granddad) (even though he is a shit,) is still around.
Their Dad is also off on holiday spookly enough in Italy and will probably when he here's the news say "Congratulations Son." Then break off to tell him what a great holiday he had. Or how he is doing something new in his life in retirement. Anyway.
You can not wipe the smile from our lasses face it is the first of her grand children to be born, there is another due just before Christmas so no sooner will she have been exhausted from the actions of wide eyed happiness and the sounds of arrrrs and oooooos then she will do it all again for grandchild number two.
The first was a baby boy by the name of Myles the second we know will be a boy but name still to be revealed. It is good when all around you seems like chaos then you have something to focus on which brings such joy. It is truly pleasing to see our lass so happy as she walked around the shops yesterday looking at baby stuff knowing she could spoil her new grandson, saying "I am a granny now" and giggling.
