    My first husband has nieces and nephews older than him by several years. [​IMG]
  3. He isn't alone. My husband's little brother first because an uncle when he was 4 years old. Lil bro has 3 bros and 2 sis from his dad, and his mom he has 2 sisters. One of his sisters from his mom had a baby when she was 15 years old. Now he is an uncle of... lets see... *counting...* *scratching head*... no... go back... *recounting again*...12, soon 13 (Mirangela/Ruben will be 13) neices and nephews and he is only 15 years old. He is also the FAVORITE uncle.

    Hubby's other little brother from his mom is 14 years old and he has 11 nieces and nephew (Mirangela/Ruben will be 12).
    His mom and his older sister were pregnant at the SAME time. The boys are only a month and a half apart, Nephew is older then Uncle. They are BEST friends.

    Big family compared to my side. My mom only had me and my brother. My dad didn't have any other kids but my bro's dad had 3 more. My dad and my brother's dad are actually full blooded brothers. Bro and I are 8 years apart. Bro had his daughter when I was 13 years old, had the 2nd one when I was 15.

    Where is that song when I need it....

    Relatives and age

    Oh, many, many years ago
    When I was twenty-three
    I was married to a widow
    Who was pretty as can be
    This widow had a grown-up daughter
    Who had hair of red
    My father fell in love with her
    And soon the two were wed

    This made my dad my son-in-law
    And changed my very life
    For my daughter was my mother
    'Cause she was my father's wife
    To complicate the matter
    Though it really brought me joy
    I soon became the father
    Of a bouncing baby boy

    This little baby then became
    A brother-in-law to Dad
    And so became my uncle
    Though it made me very sad
    For if he was my uncle
    Then that also made him brother
    Of the widow's grown-up daughter
    WHo of course is my step-mother

    I'm my own grandpa
    I'm my own grandpa
    It sounds funny I know
    But it really is so
    Oh, I'm my own grandpa

    My father's wife then had a son
    Who kept them on the run
    And he became my grandchild
    For he was my daughter's son
    My wife is now my mother's mother
    And it makes me blue
    Because although she is my wife
    She's my grandmother too

    Now if my wife is my grandmother
    Then I'm her grandchild
    And every time I think of it
    It nearly drives me wild
    For now I have become
    The strangest case you ever saw
    As husband of my grandma
    I am my own grandpa

    My grandmother had two nieces and one nephew who were 12, 14, and 17 years older than her. One of my coworkers has a year old son and a 7 year old grandchild.
