HOLY Crrrap! I'm going to be a Grandpa!
« on: December 11, 2010, 11:18:43 AM »
Yes! Yes! Yes!

I'm going to be a Grandpa! (yes, I know it has a weird ring to it!)

My son told me yesterday that they are expecting!

I am so excited I can hardly stand it! Things for me have been so shitty the last few months with my mom being diagnosed with Lung Cancer, the chemo, etc. blah.

This news has given me a much needed boost and has allowed me to feel such an overwhelming amount of joy! As some of you know my son is my best friend, and I am always soooo proud of him! When he told me I couldn't even speak, I was so overcome and I burst out into an uncontrollable cry!

I am on cloud nine! I have a smile from here to there!  ;D

Get ready world, there is going to be another Wumpster/Wumpette in the world!!!

I gotta go buy diapers now!

Here's me and my boy, the soon-to-be-dad!

FUCK you HIV! Life is good ;)

Congrats Willy.......

As a grandpa of 4, I can tell you that it is much fun.

I'll second that you sure did produce a handsome (and tall) boy there......   am I seeing a Fireman uniform??  If that is what he's wearing -- keep him away from Jan -- she'll be sure to try and have her way with him.

This is just awesome, awesome news.  Congrats Will.   :D

Does your son live near you?  When are they expecting?  Do you know the gender?

Awesome just doesn't seem to be strong enough word.  But soon you'll have a wee willie (willette) to spoil stinking rotten and leave it to the parents to clean up the mess!   ::)

I'm so happy for you and for your son.

YES! he's a Fireman/Paramedic and he's 6'4''...I sent Jan pics several months back (doesn't she have a room in her house plastered with Fireman pics?)

I thought you would appreciate the news as you're a Gramps also :)


Does your son live near you?  When are they expecting?  Do you know the gender?

RAB   ;D

No, he lives in Austin :( But it's only about an hour away. They are expecting Aug 14th (which throws AMG in doubt). Don't know the gender yet, but im gonna get the gypsy egg test going on her.

Thanks everyone!!!

I gotta go hit the "Babies R Us" before I head up there tonight! Because of course, I gotta try to be the first person to get them a pack of Pampers!

You know what I really love (and I would have said "No way" 11 years ago)....  when I go visit and get out of the car, I can hear them inside yelling, "Grandpa's here, Grandpa's here".  Yep -- never get enough of that.  Shopping for them is fun too -- who knew I'd love buying pretty pink dresses  :o.  My oldest granddaughter (she's eight) will ONLY wear pink.

You are a lucky man -- you live close enough to visit often -- mine are outside Asheville, NC -- I only get to see them 2 or 3 times a year.  Remember -- a Grandpa's main role is to spoil them rotten.......  Mom & Dad can deal with the aftermath.....

Congrats again -- I'm so happy for you.

Hugs,
Mike

good move  to scout out "Toys r us"   while you can ....      they grow out of that one pretty quickly...   my 8 yrs old grandson  put  an Apple  laptop on his Christmas list this year......   and the 16 yr old  has a car in his dreams.....

you will have a great time spoiling him/her    enjoy it all

Congrats.  I have a feeling we're going to be the first generation of openly gay grandparents.  I wish my 22 year old would start producing.  I think it'd be such great fun.  And yes, I was actually married to a woman for a minute right out of highschool.

Will, when I met you in Boston, and you were showing off your assets in those tight 501s, I never dreamed you were a daddy, let alone a grandaddy. ;D ;D ;D

I am ecstatic for you, and, I will admit, more than a little envious.

You will be a fantastic grandfather.

Your son is definitely a hunk too. How'd he get so tall? I don't recall you being that tall. ???

Anyway, I am sooo very happy for you.
