'I don't think I'm a good grandfather- I'd like to be one, but it scares me'
I don't think I'm a good grandfather. I'd like to be one, but it scares me. I have three beautiful grandchildren but there's an image out there that's very hard to live up to. If you really want to hurt your self-esteem, try Googling "grandfather quotes" and the schmaltz pours out of the computer, almost clogging the keys: "A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart" . . . "My Grandfather was the most selfless person I know" and Victor Hugo's, "There are fathers who do not love their children; there is no grandfather who does not adore his grandson."
