How Time Flies

     Just thought I'd share a little bit to help make dad feel older.  He's gonna be a first-time grandpa in a couple of months, and then again another couple of months after that!  Way to go, you old fart.  Dad's oldest son and his wife are about to have their first child, and his oldest daughter just called him the other day to say that she's expecting a little girl!  In his mind she's still his little girlI remember when all the kids were little, and even I can't believe they're having kids of their own now!
     Dad's youngest, and his namesake, will be turning 21 next week, too.  Yikes!  Sorry, mom.  Get ready for some moaning and groaning.  Next up- a cane, one of those seven-day pill things, and AARP membership. I kid.  I've earned the right. Dad's got twelve years on mom, and she and I can't help but rib him now and again about their age difference.

You sound like our family. Our boys are all grown up and our 6 kitties are also all seniors 10-13. We have 2 grandsons from our eldest and 1 grandson from our youngest... The youngest's wife is due 4/1/12 and they didn't want to know what sex s/he is... hopefully a girl too. Our Furby turns 13 on that day and he was our youngest sons favorite cat- still is! CONGRATS to you!

Hide, Orbit, hide! I understand those little sticky things are quite demanding, even if they're grand little sticky things. So while we say concats to your dad, I still say HIDE!

Orbit remember the smile of a child can be deceiving. It's not saying I like you, or your so cute. The child is smiling I want to pull your tail ,squeeze you, and use you for a pillow. Walk around them with care. Don't worry as they get older, they will learn to pet you and spoil you. That's the best part. At least you won't get diaper duty. On the other hand Grandma and Grandpa are out of luck.
