One of those special moments
« on: May 20, 2009, 06:46:18 PM »
This is going to be so off topic for an engineering forum ...... but .............. I'm sorry ............ I have to do this  :D :D :D

about an hour or so ago my Granddaughter gave birth to a baby boy ......... 6lbs 1oz .............. Mum and sprog are doing fine, though Mum had a bit of a hard time, sadly that now makes me a GGG'dad  :bugeye:

OMG .............. can someone on here build me a Time Machine and take me back to the sixties  :scratch:

GGGdad? Never would have thunk it.

Neither would I  :bugeye: ............. eldest son's wife is a few years older than him, so 10 years ago I suddenly inherited 1x Daughter in law + 3 x kids  :bang: ............ got to say at the time I was less than impressed   :scratch:

but ................ that's water under  the bridge and we now have a great family .......... so Kerry (new mum) at 21 now has a little son who is my (step) Great Grandson .............. goddamit that's severely frightening  ............... for the record I an a mere 56 years old  :med:

GGGDad?  Congratulations!  You must be so pleased and I am sure everyone else around here is too!

 :worthless:

I guess this means you get full cuddle and fussing rights but you are twice removed from any baby-sitting and nappy duties?   :lol:

Congratulations  Dave GGgrand son  :thumbup:.

What are you going to build him for his first Christmas present, a nice little engine would be nice. He can then show it to his own grand kids and say me great grand Dad made this  :lol:

Enjoy your little blessing.

A Great Grandson, at only your age!  :thumbup:


I really envy you, `cos there`s no sign of any Grand Anything for me, at my age........  ::)

Congratulations.

Perfect excuse for new toys.  Go into the local toystore, find something that catches your eye, and buy it.  "Just for when he's a bit older", you say.

I used to buy those small Lego kits, assemble them, and stick them on top of the computer at work.  When I got bored with them, I'd go get another, and repackage the old one as it was when I bought it.  Gave those to the neices and nephews at family functions.  Win-win.
