View Full Version : imminent quasi-grandfatherhood

sorry for the off-topic post.....
"Lady Swaffy" (as VT eloquently refers to her) is off to Michigan because her daughter (my sorta stepdaughter) went into labor at about 7:45 Tuesday night - about a week an a half early!
I'm stuck here waiting for the big news, but sometime today I should officially become a grandfather (sorta-kinda). Geeze, and I'm not even 40 yet. Sorry again, I'm just all anxious...

I suggest cuddling with your micros to melt off some or any nervousness. ;)

The baby was born at 4:56 AM on Wednesday morning. It's a girl. 7 lbs. 11 oz., 19 1/2" long. Her name is Mia. I've been up all night (since Tuesday morning!) and am exhausted. I'm going to bed. Good night, or morning, or whatever the hell it is. I'm getting too old for this crap. I'm a grandfather, for God's sake (well, sorta).

-- spoken like a true believer. Good advice. Maybe a cloud car or something else round-ish, eh? Those x-wings always tend to poke me in the cheek when I roll over. :)

Well Congrats SWAFMAN...I didn't know you were going through all that AND trying to get our Avon deal all squared away:) You've been busy. They say grand parenthood is great. You get to spoil the kid, but hand it over to mommy when the "dirty" work needs to be done :D Enjoy it....... quasi or not!

Congrats! Should we be calling you SWAFGRAMPS now? ;)

Congrats SWAF! Yeah, the cloud car would probably be a good choice. :cool:

So it's only qausi-grandfather hood eh? Well remember if things get a little overwhelming, when you're around micro-machines you can always proclaim:

Sanctuary! Sanctuary!
