He hasn't kissed me for days yet we instruct him to give his granpa a kiss and he's all over that request. There is no shyness or awkwardness for Roman anymore, he's very open with my parents and welcomes them with open arms. I'm glad. I worried that living so far away would knock the relationship but it goes to show that distance really does make the heart grow fonder.
I find it strange that my parents are grandparents, they don't seem old enough and I certainly do not feel 'old enough' to be a parent...yet here I am anyway. I'm glad I'm this boy's parent because it means that my parents are young enough to be involved grandparents for a long time to come and that in turn I might be a young thing when I'm a grandparent ;).
