Re: How old is grandma!?

My mom will be 50 this coming Feb. She was 47 when DS was born. Gma for the first time. DH mom was 50 I think when DS was born. My gma that I am close to was 58 when I was born, but not a gma for the first time. My dad is the middle of 5 and my gpa went to war so there was hold on children for a while! She was 32 when my dad was born.

My mom was 59 when dd was born. My mom was 34 when she had me and I was 25 when I had dd, who is her first grandchild.

On the same note I was taught in my sociology of family classes that 40 is the average age a woman becomes a grandmother. And the youngest grandmother on record was 29 when she became a grandmother. Just thought that was interesting.

My mom was 43 when my nephew was born, her first grandchild. She would've been 47 when my first DD was born, but she passed away 12 days earlier

DH's mom was 50 when DD1 was born. She was her first grandchild.

Wow. Um, let's see. My mom was 39 when she became a grandma, my dad was 34. Now, my mom is 65, dad is turning 60 and come December, they will have 17 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
