My dad is ready for grandchildren, but i dont understand why!
Im sorry i wasn't sure where to post this..
Im only 19 and when i just turned a teenager, was in highschool, was starting to think boys were cute my dad was so so strict about me having a boyfriend. He never wanted me to date until i was 30 (im sure that he was joking but back then i took him seriously) so everytime i had a boyfriend in highschool i hide him from my dad in fear of him getting upset. Now that im older i have been with my current boyfriend for 2 years. Its pretty serious between us and my dad says he really likes him.
The weird thing is...my dad has been in not so good of health lately.. and he has been talking more and more about wanting grand children. and just today i was talking to him on the phone and he mention the grand children thing again..so i asked dad if i told you i was pregnant right now you wouldnt be upset? and said heck no..i may be wanting grand children sooner than i thought. And it just really weirded me out because this is coming from a man who i use to dread even saying i thought a guy was cute when he was around. and my dad lives in a different state than i do and i just got back from visiting him for 2 months. and he didnt look good at all and he was taking all kinds of pills for really high cholesterol and stuff..so now its just worrying me that my dad wants me to pop out a baby because he thinks he might be dying or something.i mean just that phrased he used after i asked him about me being pregnant and how he always talks about it. and even said well me and your mom got pregnant at your age. he is the type of person to hide important things on account of hurting peoples feelings..so i really think something more is going on than what he is saying..because im still young..i cant believe he would be so cool about wanting me to have a baby right now.
so basically what should i make of this? i mean..should i really take it as my dad wanting me to have a child ..or should i ask if there is more to it than that..i dont wanna hurt his feelings and question him because he is really uptight now because he knows i use to hide boyfriends from him and he told me i should of had no reason to do that.
It never hurts to smile :-D
