Yesterday my oldest child had her first baby. She is by all accounts as most babies are “Very Cute”. The only mark on the day was that my ex-wife did not do a simple thing for me. I asked her to call me when birth was imminent and that would give me time to get ready and go to the hospital as being a male of the species I was not invited to the actual birthing process.
All good I have seen it with my own kids and that was fine by me…
What I did get upset about was the fact I was part of a group MMS with a picture of my new granddaughter 30 minutes after the birth. I am not sure if my ex-wife was not thinking or she purposefully excluded me. There is nothing I can do about it. I am still upset at her and will be for quite some time. Of course I didn’t say anything to the new parents as I did not want to bring my anger into the joyous occasion that a new baby brings. Like always in times as these, suck it up Jim and move on to the next thing.
All that aside, I am glad that baby and mother are doing fine. A new phase of life starts not only for the new parents but for the grandparents and the stepparents as well. Today I have a little less burden on my heart and there is more love to go around for the newest addition to our family.
