Narrated by Micah Campbell
It's taking me a while to adjust to being a grandfather. Karinna and I waited a very long time to have a second child, and taking care of my own newborn, Bennett, while at the same time taking care of Dalton, my grandson. The boys will be raised more like brothers than uncle and nephew.
Karinna went back to work and Jules has been meeting with a tutor, so I've been playing stay-at-home-Dad. It's been difficult trying to do that and still run the arcade. I've been wearing myself out.
Jules and I got into a huge fight. She was thinking about dropping out of high school and just joining the workforce so she didn't have to leave Dalton behind. I tried to explain that it's hard enough to find a job after University, let alone without a high school diploma. I kind of lost my temper with her.
I was worried I was too hard on her, but I've noticed she's been actually studying instead of trying to convince the tutor to skip out early. She usually says things to him like, "You know there's a beach party going on right now, right?"
