I am not a Dad ..my best friend Brian is ( he's got 2 grown-up daughters) one is a teacher, the other is finishing university with top marks ..so I can feel your elation. Clapton is God...great news.HB
And one of the other advantages of this is that Mrs Clapton is God and I can now start spending our hard-earned on ourselves again rather than having to continually dump it into the seemingly bottomless pit which is the expense of putting your offspring through Higher Education.
But, don;t get me wrong, I wouldn't have it any other way. ;-))
Your children got their brains from You. The difference in life is that these days there are opportunities, your children grasped the opportunities and made good use of them supported by you.
In 1924 my Father applied to join the RAF, two vacancies, one hundred applicants. He was lucky and became a "Stores Basher" he told me that I was very lucky that my Father had not been a Cook. He only did 24 years so I was able to call him National Service.
He would have been very proud of the achievements of his family especially as one Grandson is a Phd and has not even got a degree.
