Now I'm 64. A Grandma in the New Millennium Rose O’Brien read online review & book description:

Rose O’Brien - grandmother, teacher, columnist and researcher - explores the delights of grandparenting in the new millennium, taking the reader on a wander through this fascinating stage of family life: “laughter and fun, humbling experiences and moving moments, ironic musings, old skills remembered and new skills learned.”
<br>
Every aspect of family life touches grandparents, and Rose, Early Childhood teacher and for the last five years a grandparenting columnist for Sydney’s, Melbourne’s and Brisbane’s Child magazines, looks at them all, from the first sight of a new grandchild, still crumpled like a butterfly emerged from the chrysalis, to the difficulties of folding a modern pram; from dashing across the country or the world to help out in times of emergency, to the rigours of school Grandparents’ Days; and to hearing an interested young grandson say, “Grandma, you’ve got whiskers!”
<br>
Rose’s experience and memories, her research and the stories told to her by many grandparents across Australia and overseas, reveal the moving, chaotic, occasionally troubled, frequently hilarious nature of modern-day grandparenting.
<br>
As Rose says, “Life gets busy, but most of the time we grandparents meet its challenges with enthusiasm.”

“Rose O’Brien’s writing about grandparenting has universal appeal. She is a wise and switched-on baby boomer who has a natural interest in all age groups and a happy knack of writing about them in a thoroughly entertaining and engaging way.”

“No words of advice; only tales, places and observations that will amuse you, and remind you that the more things change, the more they stay the same.”
