Re: How old is grandma!?

I'm sure I'll be well in my 50s, which is fine with me. My mother was very young as she was 19 when she had my oldest sister and then my sister had her first at 16. So, 35. For me, that is too young.

My mom was 48 when I had Asa--her first grandson.

She turned 50 the DAY I had Ellis... her first Granddaughter.

Needless to say, I didn't go shopping for her THAT day.

Re: How old was Grandma when she became Grandma?

both my mom and mil were 43 when they became "grandmas" , neither one of them is called grandma though. My grandparents were a lot older because my grandma was almost 40 when she had my mom and my even though my dad's parents started younger he is one of 6 so they were still older when they had him. I never really knew my grandparents very well and I always planned to have kids at a younger age so that my children would have real relationships and memories with them, plus my mom had us when she was 23 so I just had the image of being around the same age when I had kids.

Re: How old was Grandma when she became Grandma?

I meant to check the last box AND the second one.

My mother had me at 19, and I had my DD at 21, so she was 40.

My MIL had my DH at 38 (fertility problems), and he was 35 when DD was born, so she was 73.

My DD is the first grandchild out of both of our families, so she made one a grandma much sooner than she expected, and made another a grandma much later than she expected!

...And MY grandmother was actually a great-great grandmother at age 72!!! She may manage to live to be a great-great-GREAT grandmother!
