To become a grandmother by CafeMom's standards or is it an okay age?
My son will be 27 when my first grandchild is born and I will either be 48 or just a few days away from 48. We just found out today:-)
EDIT--Love reading all of the answers. I am, btw, thrilled that I am going to bee a grandmother. I married young and had my family young and thought that i would have grandchildren young (before I was 40). The world was different then and it was " the norm" to start your family at a young age. My parents were born when their parents were 19 and 20 so my grandparents were 38 and 39 when I was born (my parents were both 19) and my parents were 38 and 39 when my first child was born and they became first time grandparents. By the time they were 48 my parents had 7 grandchildren between 4-11. I thought that I would have a few grandchildren by now as well but the world is vastly different and, unlike when we married and started a family, you need a lot more stability, a career and a savings account before you even consider having a family. My 28yo isn't dating, marriage is a long way off for him and my 24 and 22yo sons are still in college and have no plans to marry until they are done with their educations and have careers. I am very proud of them for not being on the same paths as most of those that they went to school with because most of those people are on PA and struggle. When we were young we never relied on PA, we did it all ourselves and our sons grew up knowing that they wanted to be like us and being like us means waiting to start their famiilies. Those who wait until 24-27 to have their first children seem to do better so I am glad mine are waiting/waited.
