Just changed diaper on my grandson no bragging

I have not changed a diaper in years. But hey I still have it at 52 years old. My wife and I have five children three grown daughters 33 28 23 years old and two 13 year old boys at home. Our daughter and son in law has come to visit for a few days with our grandson and I told our daughter go lay down. Take a load off I have it covered, you guys need a break.

So the boys are thirteen year olds and grandad were playing with their nephew and I was like oh no I smell a stinky. And the baby was happy after the stinky I said fellas to my boys go get the baby bag we have a job to do. As I sit and watch our grandson. I worry for his future as I do for our sons, my wife and I put our daughters through college with no student loans. And I want to do the same for our sons, Iím a union truck driver now yard jockey and never been to higher education. My wife has excelled in college and beyond but today it is hard for younger generation since we made it in 1987 after I got out army. I ramble but with the tax scam bill and gop I do worry for those I love and their future.

2. First of all

You are setting a great example for your two 13-year-old sons, changing the stinky diaper yourself! Dads and grandpas are definitely included in that chore!

Second, I know what it's like to worry about kids' futures. We managed to put our 3 sons through college without any loans and my husband is (now) retired from teaching public school. We saved $ from the time they were born and always lived within our means and it wasn't always easy. I don't know how young people manage to do it nowadays, even 20 years ago things weren't as bad or as expensive as they are now. I think it sounds like you guys are raising up a great family. Hopefully when we get the blue wave going, our young people might catch a break. If Republicans stay in office I will worry myself sick our kids will have no future except paying off one loan after another and living paycheck to paycheck. Give that little one a big hug for me!

5. I dont have that option.

My only son died in 2014 and he had not married and had no kids. And in a lot of ways I realize that there are immense worries I donít have now, and that makes my life easier, especially with the rapidly looming climate change problems, but I also donít have the joys you describe. So donít stop telling us about them. I love your stories.

10. Where does Healthcare figure in for this equation?

You can not forget about that. In those first important years when the baby is developing the emotional, mental, and physical attributes that will carry them through their whole life. Remember when 45 shoved the Healthcare bill into the Tax Reform package. I am concerned about that for all babies born now ( and everybody else of course too ).
