Lets see, gramps was 37 when the first was born, so the mom is probably round about 21, 22 years old now, and gramps was same age when she was born? man, kids having kids having kids. These poor little tykes never had a chance.

Sadly it doesn't surprise me in the least, very sad for the young boys nevertheless. Granddad was 42? wow, that is young.

'Grandpa' is to blame. He is only 42 and how stupid would he be to let the toddlers go out on their own.
