Is 43 a young age to be a grandma if your kid is 22?

I was born to a 16 year old so of course my granny is young . What is the average age to become a granny ?

  • Thats how old my dad is, and I am 22 and my daughter is now 9 months. My dad was 21 when I was born (I was born 2 weeks after his birthday) so yes and no, I suppose my whole family is young, I have friends that have parents the same age as my grandparents...

  • I was a grandmother at age 36 about to turn 37 then again at 42. And both of my children were over 18 when they had children. The funny thing is I have a son 6 weeks younger than my first grandchild and my twins are 9 months older than my second. I was still ahving children when my grown children started what is wrong with me??? LOL

  • Don't worry about it. Look at it this way you are still young enough to go outside and play with your grandkids. I had my son at 21. I always wanted to be a mom that could have the energy to do things with my children. And when it happens I will be still young enought to run around the yards with my grandkids.
