Good morning mama6!
It is nice to see a young parent that is close to their children. I'm 54, and mine moved out of the nest.
I did go through a very bad Divorce about six years, (there all bad) and the result was a daughter who disowned me. She has the Grandkids, so needless to say I do not get to see them. One of them, I have never seen and am not really sure of her name. I do not pursue her or my daughter in secret, as I honor their privacy.
My Daughter did do a sneaky thing to me, and while I was photographing local sports children, she snuck my Grandchild through the line up, and I took his photo. I never recognized him. One of my employees was processing the product line, and saw the last name on the paperwork, and we soon realized what had happened.
Cute little boy he is! :) I'm hoping that when he grows up to be a young man, he will come and look me up. I just hope it isn't too late :( I can only guess that my daughter did this, because she wanted the boy to have something from his Grandpa. A piece of History I guess. She knew that I was selling the business soon, and took advantage of the situation while she could. I'm happy about it, and never thought I would be photographing my Grandkid through the sporting organiztions I served for 15yrs. We took around 7000 sports childrens photos every year, and I worked a nother full time job on top of that.
Now, I'm remarried, and Whew!....three more children!....one 9yr, 16yrs, and 20yr who is expecting anyday. We deal with ADHD and an Alcoholic father (theirs, not me)...and it has been interesting to say the least :)
It all wears this old man out! :)
Luckley, I married a wonderful woman though, and as I have said here before, we are madly in Love, to the point I cant wait to get home to see her. A bit of an age difference, but it seems to be working for us. :) :)
So there you go!..... now you know a little more about me. I will certianlly try to keep up with your post, and look forward to visiting with you again.
Good Health to you my friend!
