This is just for grandparents, bragging about grand kids.

Granddaughter 1 just finished her first year at college.  She is in the nursing program, and successfully handled a kick-ass Anatomy & Physiology course that was about 10 times harder than the one I took at the same school many decades ago.

Granddaughter 2 is about to graduate from high school in California.  That will be be two granddaughters who made it through high school unpregnant, unarrested, and unaddicted.  Yeah!!!

Grandson is about to make it through 7th grade, a tough year.  I’m proud of all of them.  Things are looking bright right now.

If my kids heed my advice and wait until they are stable and in their 30’s to have kids, then statistically I will not be around to see a grandchild.

Beat this, GAD.

Harrison Ruffin Tyler, 89, is one of two living grandsons of President John Tyler, who was born in 1790, one year after George Washington was sworn in as president.
Just three generations—President Tyler, his son Lyon Tyler, and grandson Harrison—span almost the entire history of the United States.

Can’t beat that, not sure I would want to, babies at 75, but the young wife part sounds good.
