Who the heck knows...but today he went to work (got a new job last week and she went out for ther day...ahhhh peace and quiet...and the kitties are doing fine. Today I moved a very large and tall cat scratch post into the garage and they're using it already. The girlfriend's (Shelby) due date is now 9/29.
Please pray that I am able to accept, tolerate, be patient with and perhaps even love this child.
One improvement is that she and I are getting along better than previously. I think we're in for it. Diane (my wife) is all excited to be a grandma...buying stuff here and there. We shall see.

You will love the child because it really needs your love. It has a hard road ahead of it and a calming loving grandpa will really help smooth some of those bumps ahead.
Remember God loves that dear child.
I really understand you wish it wasn't coming but it has no choice on the matter so please don't punish the poor dear by with holding something it really needs.
It is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me.

Well said, Colleen. We know it will be challenging for you Tom, but I pray you don't get too stressed.

Thanks Guys...it's true, the baby had no choice being brought into this world. Don't worry, I'm not gonna be mean or anything to him. Just not what I was expecting at my age 68 is all. I get cranky when my sleep is interrupted...so I'm gonna get some noise reduction ear muffs LOL. My fear is what his emotional and psychological condition will be coming from two biological parents who are both bi-polar and she has smoked POT throughout her pregnancy. Some web sites say the pot will NOT affect the baby...others say it isn't good...so who do I believe? Also it's kind of a suck world to bring a baby into these days. Sorry if I seem so negative.

Dear Tom, You don't have to believe either. You trust God that the child will be as it is suppose to be.

You are just a grumpy old teddy-bear! Once that little being arrives, you will fall in love, mark my words!

Tom, I'm sad that you haven't been to the forum for a while. I hope you come back soon.
