Not Your Average Granny.

We’ve heard of awards for “World’s Best Granny” but never “World’s Youngest Granny,” which is certainly a title that many folks pray they never have to receive. But a Romanian woman has been dubbed the world’s youngest grandmother at the age of…get this..23.  We can’t even fathom how this would work.

“Granny, can I be the ring bearer at your wedding?”

See the article below. Then, give thanks that this was not you at age 23.

Goodness, I wasn’t even a Mom yet at age 23!

My gosh,, I just can’t imagine even being able to think of marriage at 10,,,, so many cultures in the world do though,,, it is just really shocking and a little scary,,, but I bet the children are fun parents since they are so young and ready to play themselves,, it never ceases to amaze me when I hear stories of children , marriage and birth from other parts of the world,,, a little disturbing but I think it is their way or surely there would be a law of somekind in place

My son is adopted from Romania – I suspect this family is among the Roma or gypsies – or live in the country where there is little access to education.

One has to remember the influence of Czescu the dictator who created a populous of unwanted and abandoned children.

the cities have opportunities but many of the rural areas do not. You would be shocked what is tolerated – ie smoking in hospitals – no pediatrc supplies – imagine a blood test via adult needle for a 20 mo old.
