  • I am 38, and although I remain a child in spirit, my body feels alot older than before the baby. I am tired, my back hurts, I never sleep a full night, and I dont get to eat as nutrtionally as i want to. i woundn't trade any of these complaints to go back to being childless though!

  • I know I'm older, but I still feel 20. Then I think that I have an 8 1/2 year old so I can't be 20.

  • I feel more "grown up", but not necessarily older.

  • Nope. I am tired, but I feel vibrant and proud to be 30, a mother of 2 and I want MORE!!! Does that make me a masochist?! I think having kids was a huge wake up call, and I needed it. Without my DDs, I would still be settling for not getting ahead.
