One of the ladies I volunteer with rushed in looking rather harassed a couple of months ago. Apologising profusely, she warned that she might be a little bit distracted as her 19 year old granddaughter was currently in labour. After we'd finished I joking asked her how she felt about having a daughter who would now be a grandmother. With a glint in her eye she chuckled and revealed that it was more complicated than that because her daughter had remarried and was due to have her own baby a month later.

Fast forward to our most recent encounter and I was pleased to hear both of the new babies had arrived safely. "We've all had to have an upgrade" she said...."I've gone from being G to 2G and my 98 year old Mother is now 3G!" It must be quite rare for there to be a great-great grandmother I would's certainly the first time I've encountered it๐Ÿ˜„

The Russian dolls image seemed rather appropriate for this post....much as I'd have liked to share a photo of my own set if I tell you the biggest is only the height of my little finger nail you might appreciate that they would have been a devil to photograph!



  1. Wow - a matryoshka family indeed!

  2. I was trying to figure out how old my cousins son was when he became a dad, and whether or not my grandma was still alive. I think she missed being a 3G by just two years.
