    My mum was 32 when she had me, and I'm 31 now....I can't believe in the other thread that someone's grandmother was only 68... That's only a few years older than my mum!
    My mum was 40 when she hade and is now 64 which is almost the age of DH grandmother lol

    My kids are lucky enough to know 3 great grandmothers and 1 great grandfather! They're still all doing well too.
    I vaguely remember my great grandmother, she passed when I was 5.

    They're long livers in my DH family. His gran is still alive and has all her marbles at 93.
    She has met 3 great gran kids, ours will be #4. The great grandkids call her 'super-gran' to distinguish her from normal gran

    I met my great grandmother. She was alive until I was 5 I think.. my other great grandmother was alive until I was 17 but she lived in Norway so I never met her.

    DS has met all of his great grandparents and we live across the rd from one set so we usually see them twice a wk. They are in their 70's and some of his favourite people. I love that he has this relationship with them!

    Perks of having DS young and my parents starting young (early 20's)

    My DS is very close with my Nanna and she's the one family member we see all the time. She's 86.

    Hes also met my paternal grandparents but my grandpa passed before he turned one. He's now 2 and my Nanna just recently passed away at 92.

    I never met any of my great grandparents although I think my mums paternal grandma was still alive when I was born but lived interstate.

    Oops forgot about his dads side.. Yep his dads paternal nona is going great guns and his dads maternal grandfather only just recently died also.

    PS. A bit confused over the title of this thread... What do you mean by vise versa?

    Lol at calling your sister a spinster! Haven't heard that term since well, last week when I watched a period drama on TV!

    DS has met both of his great-grandmothers, aged 85 and 86. He's not likely to see his my paternal grandmother again, as she lives in far north NSW, whereas we visit DH's family and paternal grandmother several times a year.

    At Christmas, DS met one of his great great aunts, who is 99 and still living in her own home!

    I met my grandpa's Mum. She died when I was about 12. But all others passed before I was born.

    DHs grandparents are long gone.

    I'm really sad about DS not meeting my paternal grandparents. But they've been gone a while, DH didn't even meet them.

    DS met my maternal grandpa, who has since passed. And my maternal Nan, who I am hoping will be around for a while yet :-)
