  • You just took offense when you shouldn't have. I don't get offended when people call me a "young" mom. it's just describing your age group... geez.

  • I dont really get it either honestly.. my mom was 35 when she had me and she is an amazing mother.. she had all her schooling done, she made awesome money, she could afford to have children.. 35 isn't old to me.. its not like she was 60 getting knocked up.

  • My mom had 10 children. She was 42 when she had my youngest sister. Babies are a blessing, and it doesnt matter what age you are.

  • Yes your opinion of age really depends on how old YOU are. Older moms rock (I'm 33 and have twin 17 month olds...)

  • i didn;t take any offense to it and i think if someone says those things about other people then they are ignorant and really not educated and very judgemental and probably teaching their children to be judgemental as well.

    Are you sure you didn't take offense? It seems awfully judgemental of you to assume they are no educated and teaching their children to be like them??
