The question that remains is whether you appreciate the enormity of the loss/gain ratio of your actions now that it has been spelled out for you. Two weeks is the reasonable amount of time for you to bring your son to give your granddaughter’s mother a get. Two weeks for it to sink in that for the sake of your relationship with your granddaughter you need to heed the words of our sages (Tamid 32a): “Who is wise? He who sees what is yet to come.”
