    One of "those" phone calls

    I was sitting at Olive Gardens this afternoon eating lunch with the "trouble and strife" when my iPhone rang. It was my daughter-in-law calling to tell us she'd just been to the Dr and the rabbit died. Looks like it's soon to be Grandpa Basil!

    Congratulations to all!

    One of the best things about being a grand parent - having fun with the grand kids, but being able to say "ok - go home now".

    Congrats to you and Mrs Bas. There’s nothing like being a grandparent.
    My 4-year old grandson asked me “when are you coming for a play date?”
    I booked airline tickets the next day.

    That's what I hear! Fortunately I won't have to book a flight - just make a 35 min drive.

    Congrats to all. Being a grandparent is much better than being a parent.

    Well, "better" is kinda subjective. No argument though that grand parenting is easier.
