For those who didn’t know already, I’m a new Papa! With the birth of Amaria Starr Bentley to my son and his wife I enter the world of grand-parenting. I’m really looking forward to being a Papa–from what I’m told it’s the best thing in the world. Later this year my second grand-daughter will be born to my daughter and her husband. I’m thinking that this could well be one of the best years of my life.

I would love to hear the stories, encouragements, warnings, and more from other grandparents. Post them here.
