“Dad, you’re going to be a grandfather!” This is the kind of news that brings about a litany of emotions. On the one hand you are thrilled that your daughter is going to have a baby. On the other hand, all of your delusions that you are still young suddenly go up in smoke.
It is not that this news is unexpected. My daughter and her husband have been trying to have a baby for a while. Regardless, the news still hits you like a Randy Johnson fastball to the chest.
