If you're a grandma old were you when you became one?

My mom was 49 when she became a grandma. My maternal grandma became one around 40, when my brother was born in 1980. My paternal grandma was around 50 when my brother was born.

  • I was 45. Everyone thought my Daughters & I were Sisters! They'd card one of them if they bought their Dad Beer & not Me! I'd so Laugh. I was suspected of being between 18 & 24!! It made them Mad. 'Cuz they'd Say, if you're that Young how old am I??? Now I have 2 Grandsons & A Grand Baby due in September. Plus+ my newlywed Daughter has Step Teen Sons so I also have Teen Step Sons!! I don't Feel like A Grand mother! But I never had one to compare one to!! But mine Are purely Wonderful! I only had Daughters so Grand Sons Are New to me! Especially the First Born one! We have A Special bond & everyone thought he looks just like Me!! They own my Heart!! The Saying goes if you knew how much Fun Grand Children were you'd Skip Children & go Straight to them!! Tthat's not possible!! Plus Sometimes When A Grand Child is Naughty... And your own Child is upset & goes they don't listen At all!! You Smile & remember how Naughty they were!
