We had our kids when we were young, but not too young, in our 20’s. Our parents became grandparents in their 40’s and great grandparents in their 60’s. They went to their grandchildren’s high school and college graduations and weddings. Today couples aren’t becoming parents until they’re mid 30’s or later and then grandparent are in their 60’s and great grandparents in their 90’s. I think in the near future, there will be very few great grandparents. The sad thing for families is the leaving factor – kids leaving the place where they grew up and moving away. Parents might see their kids once a year or have everyone all together every 3 or 4 years if they’re spread across the country or continents. It’s even harder for grandparents. When my father-in-law came to visit the other day he said he came because he wants his great grandchildren to remember him. We took a short walk and my grandson held his hand; I wish I had taken a photo. I did get a photo of him with both his great grandchildren on his lap and after he left my grandson said, I miss grand-poppop already. Don’t forget to capture memories.
