I have two beautiful granddaughters, Brenna (4) and Devony (2); they are the greatest treasures in my life. My oldest child, Alicia, graced us with these gifts. We were just getting over empty nest syndrome when she told us about Brenna...couple years later we got another gift. I am 44 years old and had my oldest child when I was 18. She will be 26 soon.

Having grandchildren is like having a second chance to do things right; my children see how we are with the grandkids and think its great! I love my children; they are the light of my life and grandchildren are a bonus!

I am 49 and a grandmother of 2 girls, ages 5 and 1 1/2yrs old. I love them more than anything. I watch my grand kids while my daughter and her husband are at work and I must say that I now understand why they say women over 40 should not start a family. It wears you out! LOL I have arthritis and other health issues so my mobility activities are somewhat limited. I do a lot of arts and crafts with them and they love it. My oldest granddaughter loves doing crafts and is quite creative in her own right. She also likes to play chess and other board games with my mother.

Congratulations on entering this wonderful stage in your life. Enjoy all the fantastic moments and remember that it is a learning experience. There is no perfect way to be a grandparent...just thank God that you were chosen to enjoy this beautiful opportunity. I am the parent of two sons and two daughters ages 30, 32, 36 and 40. I have ten grandchildren ages 9 mths, 2 yrs, 4 yrs, 7 yrs, 10 yrs, 12 yrs, 13 yr old twin girls, 15 yrs and 19 yrs old. I have played many roles in my grandchildren's lives and have learned much with and from them and my children and their spouses. What I have learned most of all is that I must let their parents parent their children and step back and be a loving grandparent. There is definitely an evolutionary process in place. If we can remember this and not take things personally, we get the pleasure of truly enjoying the experience of grandparenthood. I love it. I am 59 years old and have been divorced since 1988.

Hi, My name is Sandy. I am 46. I have 5 children. 23, 22, 21 year old twins, and a 19 year old. I have 6 grandchildren, number 7 on the way. Technically 7 grandchildren, 8th on the way if you count my one daughter's boyfriend's little boy and he calls me grandma. My grandchildren range in ages from 4 to 10 months. Got any questions, go ahead and ask. Anything you might be going through, probably have been there and done that.

Hi Meredith,

I am also 43 and have two grandchildren. I have two girls; 22 and 20 and I have two boys; 19 and 17. My grandchildren are 2 1/2 and 1 both from my 22 year old. I absolutely LOVE being a grandma!!!

Hi Meredith

I have 2 grandchildren also but I don't feel I have really been able to enjoy them as a grandmother should. My eldest daughter was just 19 when she had TJ, who was born 10 days before my youngest daughter. 13 months later she had Layton and although their existence has made Alex and myself closer (she was my 'wild child') I feel guilty of not being able to support her and spend time with the grandchildren as I feel a grandparent should. I must admit it can be bedlum when Alex's boys and my two youngest girls (age 6 and 7) get together but enjoyable!

Hello All,

My name is Carmen and I am 47yrs young. I have two grandson's from my oldest daughter (26yrs) and my youngest daughter (24yrs) has no children. I love my grandson's very much and would do anything for them. My daughter has joint custody with the father of her youngest son(3yrs), but complete custody of the oldest(6yrs) I have the oldest most of the time because I help out with him due to being border-line autistic. He tells me, "Mema' I wanna be with you a longgg, longgg, lonnnggg time. ;o) There is so much going on in this situation at time that it drives me crazy. I remind myself that I am her back up and not his parent. She tries so hard to work with him and go to school and I am proud of her for how far she has come, but sometimes it get's a bit over-whelming for her so I keep him with me. I have a room set up at my house for them that is their's. I would NEVER request custody of him... but I want to get guardianship again to be able to assist a bit further with paperwork again, where she don't understand because she has challenges herself at time.

Thank you so much. I believe they are the reason I am stilling. The boy is getting to be a handful but he's also kind when i need him to be. Two of the granddaughters i hardly every get to see don't even get pictures. his wife is something else but God only gives us what we can handle. He's always watching over us.

I LOVE BEING A NANNA!!!!
Hi,
My name is Elena, I have three sons, first aged 38 he has 2 sons and one daughter which I don't get to see much as they live a couple of hours away, I've got to see them once in the last year as they have a busy life. My second aged 30 he has one son and I don't get to see his son as much as well as he lives a couple hours away, I do get to see my grandson on occasions, they've come down with him a few times and I see my son more as he has to comes down for work. The third son 28 which has two daughters, I get to see them more as they only live 1/2 hr away and they always invite me to their day outings and occasions, they've come and picked me up a few times and I've gone with them in their car. I have one daughter 23yrs old she doesn't have any children yet. I don't favour any of them it's just the way it is and I have to live with it. I love all my children and grandchildren with all my heart, I feel sad that I don't get to spend more time with them. I haven't been as well for the last year so it's been hard for me to always travel to go and see them, I get more tired than usual. I am 55.
