    Our youngest (26) just announced he's engaged. We love Monika and the two of them are perfect together. It just takes a bit of getting used to.

    Being old is subjective, I have grand babies however, my youngest is 4 months, had remarried and wife is 28, and younger than 4 of my children, work out daily with free weights and do the p90 x program. 6 days a week in addition to the weights. Feel 20 too so all is good here. My oldest is 40 and all my grand children are older than my youngest may be old in years but definitely young in actions and thoughts.

    Thanks. We already have a grandaughter (oldest son't offspring) what has lived with us for most of her almost eight years. I hope more are of in the future, Alex and Monika are graduating in June and off to grad school in California, which is what led to the proposal. Both will be working on Master's degrees in something environmental. Alex seems to have the family math gene and is talking about statistical analysis. Monika has a thing about fungi, not quite sure what it is she plans on doing with them. (Besides cooking them, they are both remarkable cooks).
