More and more of the people I grew up with are becoming grandparents. My mind cannot process that being possible These are people who had kids in their early 20s and their kids are doing the same. But wow. I am not prepared to be this much of a grownup yet

I had my son at 23. He's about to turn 20 this week. I'm 43 so I hope he gives me a while longer.

That’s me! I’m 54 and I have one granddaughter and a grandson due in December. Dh and I don’t look our ages and we usually shock people when we say we have a granddaughter. My parents were older when they became parents and I didn’t want to be in my 40’s having children. It all worked out and we love being grandparents.

I used to feel that way, but now that I am a grandma, I love it! I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!

I am about to be a grandmother for the first time at 63. I can't wait and am so ready. We had our children in our early thirties and our children are doing the same. Had I been a grandmother in my early forties I may have felt differently. All my friends who are grandparents say it is the best.

The strangest thing about being a grandma is realizing that you sleep with grandpa!
