I find the They Sayism about older mothers have more wisdom is true; however the less energy isn't happening.

That sounds familiar to me. I had my son 2 weeks after my husband turned 33.

The thing is, I've heard people say they were dreading the teen years and much to their delight their strong willed child FINALLY figured out the difference between defiance and strong willed to make the teen years a happy time.

The "polite societal" response we give as to why we waited so long to start our family is we weren't financially stable and didn't feel comfortable starting our family until things were at least "okay".

Sheesh, way to make you feel old (you're not, by the way).

You know, I always wanted my kids closer together in age (they are now 23, 13 & 10) and now I look back and am SO glad that they are spaced apart the way they are. There are reasons why things happen the way they do and you waiting til you were a little older to start your family obviously has it's benefits.

Hi Karen!

When my oldest was little, people never believed that my mom was his grandma (granted, she was young enough to be his mom, but still).

Have you found that some people are just waiting before they have kids so there are older parents with young children more often?
