    Grand child number

    I was thinking about how my mum and dad were grandparetns before i had my 3 kids....but DH's mum and dad had none.

    So what number was your child/children in the family?

    My side of the family were:

    #4 Chelsea (3rd Grand Daughter)
    #5 Jasmine (4th Grand Daughter)
    #6 Zachery (2nd Grand Son)

    DH's side of the family were:

    #1 Chelsea (1st Grand Daughter)
    #2 Jasmine (2nd Grand Daughter)
    #3 Zachery (1st Grand Son)

    My side
    DS - grandson & boy # 5 (we had a huge run of boys!!)
    DD - 2nd grand-daughter (grandchild # 8)

    DH's side

    DS - #1 grandchild
    DD - #2 grandchild
    (and will probably remain this way - doesn't look like DH's siblings want to produce any offspring! They hate kids)

    If I count step grandchildren as well....

    Kameron was #13
    Lachlan was #14
    Ashton was #16

    If I count just mum only

    Kameron was #4
    Lachlan was #5
    Ashton was #7

    and Mum has Grandsons only, no Grand-daughters.

    Charlotte is 1st on my side, 3rd on MIL, FIL was dead long before Charlotte was born (1st for my MIL though doesnt have anything to do with the family. She in fact has a child herself now, so MIL is actually a GREAT grandmother!)
