Only if asked! .... But the past 20 years have turned me into a cranky old man.....I have two friends that never bothered to have kids until their 40s. I find myself hanging around more with my friends who had their children when I did and are empty nesters... Five year olds have to much energy for me. Of course they aren't my grandkids though...

My two oldest were teens, and very rough for both of them, just in the past year has my relationship with DD gotten better, her having a child of her own has matured her considerably. All the kids are better able to put things in perspective with time, they love their mom, as they should, but just shake their heads at some of her antics. 50/50 can work if the co-parents are on the same page, but if we were on the same page probably wouldn't have divorced.
