I’m now a proud grandfather. My life is incredibly different, now. Little Ali Rae Mondok is the light of my life. I can’t believe I’m so blessed. For those of you, friends and family, that want to stay tuned in to what's up with Ali, I put up a blog for her (link).
That said, I’d like to complain a little. Please indulge me.
Jeff, a guy I work with, called me a Gen X Grandpa. He said that I was the only Generation X granddad he knows.
I think I’m the only one I know, too.
I turned forty on my last birthday. I was cool with that. I thought that maybe I’ll finally get some respect.
Some say that my fire engine red jap bike is a sure sign of a mid-life crisis. I don’t see it that way. But nothing kicks a mid-life crisis into high gear like becoming a grandparent when you think you’re so young.
Below are some pictures of guys that are right around my age. These should give my little pity party some perspective.
