I also am a 43 year old grandma! First time grandma. My granddaughter was born on September 5th, 2008 and I am finding it such a joy to be a grandma at my age. I was married at 20 and I have two grown sons ages 22 and 21. My younger son was married at 20 and then soon after along came a baby! I have six sisters myself and I am #5 - but the first grandma out of the seven sisters. They are all jealous! I just watched her this last weekend for a day and a half so my son and his wife could stay at a nice hotel before he left for Iraq yesterday. It was so fun to keep her. My husband adores her and we are having so much fun being grandparents. We still look young and don't fit the traditional grandparent look but we are lovin' that too! To be enjoying our 40's as grandparents is great!
