After the initial disgust of finding out a toddler had ingested cocaine I reread the story to find out the grandmother is 34. I'll be 33 next month. I can't imagine being a grandmother at 33.

I can't imagine being a grandmother at 33 either. I would hope that she was a step-grandmother.

I said the same thing last night. My Mom was 17 when I was born... I waited until I was in my 30's to have kids.

The daughter, who says she was in the shower when it happened, is 17.

Her mother could have been 16 when she had her.

16 + 16 = 32 for the grandmother.............the grandchild could have a child at 16 which would make her a great grandmother at 48........so on and so on.

I know a family that the Great grandmother had her first at 17. The grandmother had her first at 17. The mother had her first at 17. The daughter had her first at 17. The granddaughter had her first at 21.
The comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
---George Eliot

I used to work with a girl who was 32 and a grandmother of 2. She had her first baby at 13. She told me "there aren't but two things to do in Alabama - f&*$ing and fighting and I don't fight". :pardon:

I had a friend who was married at 15, she had her first grandchild at 33 as I recall.
Very young.
I'll be 46 in October, and my daughter was born 12 days before my 20th birthday~ I thought that was young ;).
I do have an almost 5 year old grandson from my 27 year old stepdaughter...grandbabies are mighty awesome :wub:.

Technically yes, at 35 I am old enough to be a grandma. My daughter is 14, but she is way too well supervised and smart for such a thing.

I waited until I was 31, not by choice, but it probably turned out better that way, at least for me and my kids.

I had a couple of kids (about 15 yo) do it in my pool one time with me and 2 other adults sitting on the patio! And other kids all around! I didn't find out until one of the kid's mom called me a week later, we were so shocked!
Edit I forgot to put this: :blush: :blush: :blush:

My mom was 34 1/2 when my oldest nephew was born. One of my sisters has a stepdaughter who was a grandmother (yes, biological grandmother) at 32 or 33. She got married really young, like 16 and then her daughter had a baby at a similar age.

After the initial disgust of finding out a toddler had ingested cocaine I reread the story to find out the grandmother is 34. I'll be 33 next month. I can't imagine being a grandmother at 33.

Don't be so sure about that. My sister in law probably has a genius level IQ and she got married at 15 even though she was "too smart" to do such a thing. Thank goodness, she didn't have a kid! By that husband.

I'm 100% positive. Of course that could change, I'm not naive. As of now, she would rather listen to music, draw and read than hang out with any boy. I'm hoping it stays that way for a while.

and when I say smart, I don't mean she's a genius. I mean she has a really good head on her shoulders. You would have to meet my child to understand, she's like a 55 year old in a 14 year olds body. She is oddly mature for her age. It's surprising, considering I am her mother. :pardon:

My granddaughter Starr is an "old soul", too. My daughter swears Starr is the reincarnation of her other grandmother, Becky. We all just wish her grandmother Becky had lived to meet her and her little sister.

For a contrast.

It looks like I'll have my first grandchild this October ... when I'm 62.

Long generations are kind of a family tradition. Both of my grandfathers died in the mid 1930's. My great grandfather fought in the Civil War. My great, great grandfather married in 1796 in North Carolina and came to Cherokee County Georgia in the 1820s. His father-in-law, one of my great, great, great, grandfathers was born on Long Island, New York in the 1750s and fought in the Revolutionary War.
