I'm going to be a grandfather! Woo hoo! They haven't tuppence to rub together, so there'll be 3 generations under one roof. Still, DD is doing well after the throwing stopped, he's working all the hours God sends, and with luck I shall see New Person into their teens, as opposed to my DF who got less than 7 years of DGF hood. Wish us luck.

So sweet. My children have got the BEST grandad and as a fatherless child myself who never had a grandfather it gives me enormous pleasure seeing their wonderful relationship. Grandads rock. Congratulations grin

Being a granddad is the bedt thing in the world. Enjoy being wrapped totally around his/her little finger. Have you bought a flat cap yet?

Congratulations grandad! Though I was wondering what on earth your pregnant dd was throwing grin

Good on her partner for doing all the extra hours at work, nice to see this on here as opposed to the threads that say the father is a lazy sod etc. You must be so excited smile

What a lovely post. We first became GPS 23 years ago. In similar circumstances. They lived with us for 8months, sharing a room not even big enough for a double bed.

They have worked hard, stuck together through all difficulties and brought us so much joy. Congratulations.
