I am now a first-time grandfather. Nolan Christian was born to my son and daughter in-law in November. I’m especially looking forward to the years ahead. Here’s why being is grandfather is pure awesomeness:
1. Now that I am instantly old I can hike my short pants up too high and start wearing white socks with sandals. Grandfather’s do that, you know. Besides, I love that look.
2. I will get to take my grandson to fun places…. like Bass Pro Shop.
3. I’m going to get a really cool nickname – Pappy.
4. I can take the “spoiling a child” up to a whole-new-level. Parents job: Teach manners, self-control and self-discipline. My job: What does Nolan want today?
5. Other awesome things I’m looking forward to: Tee Ball, sports, fishing, etc., and telling him about God.
