I met a chick in the gym today. We were talking and she happened to mention that she is 22 and her dad is 71. Yikes, there are only 4 kids in the family, so it is not like she was the last of 13 or anything. Anyone else have a huge gap like that in their family?

Damn! My mother was 21 when she had me, and I was 21 when I had my first. [rolleyes] My daughter will probably be 21 when she has hers! [rolleyes]

My dad was 2 months away from being 52 when I was born.

I was 57 when my youngest son was born. His mother was 43 and he was her first, and only, child. Neither of my adult sons were married at the timew, and I saw little chance of being a grandfather, so figured that if I wanted a little one around, I'd have to do it myself[:D] I'm still not a grandfather, but don't care that much any more.

when I was in junior high school (8th grade) one of my good friend's dad died. he was 72 years old. my friend was 13. he was the middle son. the eldest was about 20, the youngest was 7. so you've got a 72 year old man with a 7 year old son.

My father was 65 when I was born and my mother 45. TT

WOW! I always thought it was unusual that my dad was 47 (mom 42) when I was born! I feel *slightly* more normal now....

My dad died when I was 18. He was 73. Everyone thought he was my grandfather. Kinda sucked actually, as he retired from ranching and pretty much did nothing while we were growing up. He used to go hunting all the time, but quit when we were seven and never took me or my twin brother to hunt. But then, whatcha gonna do?

Wow, I did not realize there were that many people having kids at that age. Also correction on the previous James Brown comment. He had his last son at 69.

My Dad was retired when I was growing up, so that was cool to have him around. He was a retired engineer and we got to travel all over and spent time in South America. Travelled all along the Pacific Coast and even lived in a house right on the beach for a few years while he did a little work here and there. People did think he was my Grandad, but he was intelligent, provided well for our family and taught us well. I do wish I had been able to tell him one more time how much I appreciated his generosity and guidance, but he died suddenly. But hey, those 18 or so years I knew him was worth 3,4x that.

I thought I was on the higher end of the scale with my father being being close to 40 when I was born. Guess not. Funny how the age of your parents plays so heavily into your values and personality.

Did they have any children who lived?

It's not the oldest, but it's interesting. My great grandfather came home early one day and caught the preacher and spouse sharing a "religious experience." Told them to git th' HELL OUT! I guess that was the divorce as well..... Soured him on marriage for quite awhile. Then he met a pretty 19 yr old, He was 60, they had 13 kids. The last one died a couple of years ago.

TitaniumT, I've seen a lot of correlation. Of course, I can't offer proof, but I've seen plenty of differences. It's like generalizing about only children or the middle child. It's not always true, but it often is. At my age, I can't imagine making a 20 year commitment. That's just wrong. I've got a five year payment plan for my wife's last set of hospital visits, and that makes me feel very uncomfortable because I have no idea what kind of shape I'm going to be in after that long. My hope is that Willard Scott will still be on the Today Show in 25 years, three months, and one week when I hit a 100, and I get my picture on the air, but things can go bad quickly so you can't depend on next month, much less years down the road. It's a child we're talking about, not a mortgage.z

Of greater significance the the age difference between parent and child is the difference between man and wife/girlfriend. As the late, great W.C. Field's said, "You're only as old as the women you feel!."
