My only daughter had her first baby today. Mom and Hayden are doing fine. Grandpa better get busy and finish building the 6 drawer dresser. It should be done by next week and then I can start finishing it and the crib I already have built. If you care to look at my blogs you can see how I built the 4 in 1 crib. I need to deliver them the first week in August to California.

Congrats But you realize you won’t have much time to do any woodworking. When my first grandchild came that was it, all things stopped when she’s around. Enjoy!!!

Congratulations, Tom!

They say being a grandparent is a lot more fun than being a parent…. you can spoil them rotten, then give them back to mom and dad!
