My very first grandchild was born over the weekend.
The DIL and baby are both doing very well.
He's a healthy baby boy ... and very handsome!

Whoa. I'm not old enough to be a grandpa. :shock:
Sunrise ... sunset ... sunrise ... sunset ... quickly, fly the years.....

That's great Jeff! Congratulations! I hope they'll be living nearby.

I've been a Grandpa for almost two years now, and it just gets funner all the time. I'll have a second in April :D

Having a grandchild is well worth feeling a bit older.

Oh, we'll spoil him alright!
Spoiling grandchildren is the role of the grandparent. That is their reward for surviving their own children. It is also fulfilling the curse of every parent when they say: "When you grow up, I hope you have kids just like you!"

On a more serious note, I've come to believe that it's really important for kids to be spoiled by someone. It helps to maintain their sense of self-worth to see that someone really likes them, even when they're rotten, until they can truly build their own self-esteem.

Parents can't do it, because parents have to be the ones that lay down and enforce the rules, to provide the stability and consistency that's also important for kids. Parents should always show love, but sometimes they have to be mean. Having someone around who is always nice is good.

So, spoiling grandchildren is the grandparent's job, and it's an important one. Take it seriously and do it thoroughly :)
