    I am Pa-paw, paw-paw, pop, and grandpa. Any of them works for me.
    The only problem is the Grandpa's and Grandma;s that call me Grandpa.
    Now that'll really let you feel old.

    Congrats Zookeep:
    I'm Papaw.
    The great thing about grand-kids is, when you babysit-you can load them up with sugar----and send them home with their parents.
    My oldest granddaughter, Emily is 10 now, and she gets a big kick out of helping papaw with the bees. That's what you have to look forward to.

    Congrats to your daughter, her husband, to your wife and to you.
    Grandchildren are something special since you don't have to change their diapers.
    If you want something really original, how about being called Dipeless or Nodipe? :lol:

    John,
    Enjoy every minute you can with them--They are priceless and so is the time you spend with them! If you do it right, they'll keep you feeling young forever.
    I'm 72 and my seven children have blessed me (so far) with 36 grandchildren. Time spent with them is rejuvenating. :drinks:

    ""rejuvenating.""

    Does that mean tired, worn out, ready to drop, and broke?? If so, I agree completely. :D :D :D

    Iddee--by no means!
    Children are tiring,
    grandchildren are in a different category. You come to them with more experience and less responsibility.
    Maybe you just don't have enough of them to have learned the secrets yet
    Tell your children to get to work....:yahoo:

    My children are done. My grand children are now producing. I guess I'll never learn the secrets. :shock: :lol:

    If I'd have known grandchildren were so much fun, I'd have had them first.

    Then you would have made a double win---enjoying your grands first and then let them raise your children. :lol:

    How about "Old Bee Guy"? That's a mouthful for a little one. You won't have to worry about a name for a few months. That will give you time to adjust to a new name. Congrats on your blessing.

    I think we may need to do 'the quote of the day'... the above should do for day 1. Although I will never have children or grandchildren I do get some large joy from my friends children and grand children.

    We always used "Nana" and "Papa" on one side of the family to differentiate from Grandma and Grandpa on the other. My German friends use Oma and Opa.

    Same here. Nieces and nephews, too.
