    My daughter came to me today, and told me something that I completely was not expecting.

    Seems that, in about March of next year, I'm going to be a grandpa!

    I don't think it has really sank in yet.

    But the more I think on it, the more I kinda like the idea.

    (Of course, the wife is overjoyed at the prospect of being a grandma. Big surprise there, right?)

    I mean, I know, she is 21 and married, but the thought of becoming a grandparent just never really crossed my mind.

    I know there are a lot of younger people on this forum, and more than a few parents, but, are there any grandparents in here?

    Wonder what my daughter will say about me turning the child into a future Black Hatter?

    :D

    Congratulations to you and your daughter! I don't have any kids of my own, so there's no way I could become a grandpa. I'm almost a little jealous.
