I have nieces and nephews who "could" have kids, but fortunately the cycle of teens parents is slowing dying in our family! I have 3rd cousins with kids my kids age...

Quoting Kady:" Seriously though, my niece had her baby on Thursday morning. He's totally healthy and she's doing great! I am seriously only 26 and I am a Great Aunt! I can hardly believe it!!"


I became a great aunt at 24, 3 weeks after my son was born. It's crazy....

I'm glad I waited. My niece was pregnant at her graduation. Kind of opened my eyes! It was crazy that the school praised her for being pregnant!

Were they praising the fact she was strong enough to continue going to school while pregnant and complete her studies? Because to me that's worth praise

Nope. Praising her because it is difficult to be a young Mom, and hoping that others would follow her example, but she BARELY even graduated

I don't really think it is odd. My Grandmother is the youngest out her Sisters and her oldest Sister got Married and had a couple of Sons before she was even born so my Grandmother has nephews that are older than her.
