    Congratulations Stanley. It's a great feeling but different to having your kids.

    You can be involved as much as you want, then if it gets a bit too much for you then you can walk away until you're ready again.

    I've got 5 and two thirds (6th one due April) so I speak from experience.

    Thanks Bill. I've known this was on the cards for a while,(only weeks) but seeing the scans yesterday broke my heart.

    Yes it's amazing. I don't care how hard or tough you feel but the scans always bring a tear to the eye.

    Congrats Stanley. Its now time to annoy your kids by being soft on the grandchild, when you were severe with them!

    That's good advice TopToon. Also a Grandad's prerogative.

    Congrats mate
    I am a grandpappy myself of only ten weeks its great stuff
    You forget what its like to have bairns after having years of stroppy teenagers
    Its also good seeing your kids finally grow up and feel the total consuming love that you have felt for years.

    Good on yer Stan, great feeling isn't it ?
    I've got six grandgirls, could eat them all up ! Now you've got the time to stand back and watch them grow up, we were too busy with our own kids making a living and putting bread on the table, we missed a lot. Now you can relax and just take it all in.

    Already thinking about the age you can take a child to a match.

    My Son was three.
