Grandma Boomer?

I cannot be a grandparent--I don't know how to make a strudel, I don't own a hair net, and my stocking are never rolled down to my knees. I can't crochet, play mah-jong, or speak Yiddish. How could people as young and hip as we Boomers turn into grandparents?

Well, we are. An article in the Palm Beach Post discusses what this means to a culture obsessed with youth and with still being cool.

The article also mentions "A Boomer's Guide to Grandparenting," by Kathryn and Allan Zullo, who became grandparents in their 40's. Yikes! In my forties, I was still attending parent-teacher conferences at the middle school.

Anyway, Mr. Zullo had been kind enough to come right here to the Aging Hipsters when he was researching the book, so we thought we'd give it nice plug. In preparation for the next role in your life, why not start learning how to be the best, if not the hippest grandparents ever. Buy the book at Amazon.
