Now We Are Nana And Papa!

Nana, Papa, and Kate

I haven't been blogging much lately. Work, and our vacation home in Maine, have taken up much of my free time.

Oh, and one other small thing has taken up some time - the birth of our first grandchild Katherine Rose! Our oldest son Matt, and his lovely wife Kim are now parents. And that means my wife and I are now Nana and Papa! copyrightjoestrazzere

It's an emotional feeling to watch your first-born son hold, feed, burp, and change diapers for his first-born daughter. And it's a wonderful feeling to hold, feed, burp, and change diapers for your first grandchild.

  5. Congratulations Joe.

    I was with my two daughters (2 and 4 years old) and my dad at the weekend and he was charging round the playground with them like he was 7 rather than 70... My mum just sipped her cup of tea and looked lovingly on.


  6. Thanks, James - I now know a little bit about how your Dad feels. And I can assure you it's a good feeling!
