My dad is going to make the best grandpa ever. When I was growing up, he was incredibly strict in terms of boys, schools, religion, and clothing. My boyfriends, of whom I was NOT suppose to have, walked in fear of him which is probably an excellent thing looking back. As time has passed, we have developed a wonderful adult relationship in which I appreciate all of what he has done for me and he respects that I'm an adult. We actually like spending time together at the holidays and plan family vacations with adjoining balcony staterooms. More and more as he gets older, he has turned into a big soft mush, the kind that loves you to death and would do anything for you no matter how inconvenient. He reminds me so much of my grandpa, his dad, who was always just fun.
So imagine his glee at hearing that he is going to be a grandpa. Yep, glee people.
This morning he called to check on me to see how I was feeling. He's been looking up information on pregnancy and finding out what's going on week by week. Hearing the smile on his face when he talked about it definitely hit the cute button. He says that every dinner conversation always has some element where child birth is mentioned which is a big no-no in his book. I was cracking up today imagining him doing this now. It's so much more interesting now that it's happening to his grandbaby! :)
