"Both of my grandfathers are gone, and it's really made me sad lately."
There are many good things about being an older parent. I think I'm much better at being a dad than I would have been in my twenties. But thinking about my dad and Rhonda's dad makes me sad too. They would have both loved being granddads, and Dylan would have loved being around them.
So, oh yes, there are minuses to being an older parent too.
