Hey Kid: Heightened Anticipation
Well, I'm getting the impression that grandchildren are a really, really big deal. Everyone is telling me how wonderful it is to have them. They describe it as so much more intense than having children of our own. I can't imagine anything greater at this stage in my life. I guess I'm not surprised... but I probably won't understand the full extent until it happens to me. I am a little surprised at the response to this blog idea. It has been overwhelmingly positive. Everyone is very excited about the whole thing... And you're not even here yet!
Right now the idea of grandchildren is a little difficult to grasp. As a matter of fact, your grandfather can't even decide what he wants to be called. I took a poll on Facebook and the favorite choice was "Papa." There were a few votes for "Pops" too. Steel suggested the name "Chief" and I think that's my favorite so far... (Sierra liked it too.) I guess we'll have to wait and see. To be perfectly honest, Leroy's not real keen on making a decision on this right now. We need to give him some time to get used to the idea of YOU! (He's not the think/plan ahead kind of guy like me.)
