And MY pregnancy at age 38 was completely textbook perfect with no complications, a health 9lb baby who continues to be extremely healthy.

So.......... you're wrong


And who says I'll die when she's young?

Seriously - get a grip

 Wow nobody called the chick who posted "you shouldn't have kids under age 25" an idiot but this girl is getting called an idiot? I agree. I think it is selfish and dangerous. Ater the age of 35 your pregnancy is highrisk. Your risking yours and the baby's life.  Plus.. you think your kid wants a parent who is going to die while they are still young? They are also at higher risk for down syndrome. I think it is selfish.  A mature 25 year old is better off having a kid then a 40 year old is.

What's right for you, may not be right for another.  Just because somebody is a senior citizen (65 and up), doesn't make them ignorant or slow.  There are many vibrant, energetic people in their 60s and 70s.

How is that unfair to kids?  My x husband is 35 and his parents are in their 80s.  They're still going strong and rather active.

I'm divorced mommy of three and there are no "baby daddies". I'm a staunch right wing republican and a professional cosmetologist (hair, nails, makeup etc) working my tail off to make my own way in this world. I breastfed my kids and rewarded myself with a boob job to put back what the breastfeeding fairy took away. I believe in tough love, rules, boundaries, discipline and follow through. My kids do not rule the roost. They say yes ma'am, no ma'am, yes please and no thank you. Because of the values and respect that I've taught them, other people don't mind being around them. I spanked my kids just like my mom spanked me and we've all turned out fine. We're a hard playin', fun lovin' family. This is me, take it or leave it.

OP, you should add to your title that this is a spin of that other post. Maybe people would get the joke instead of acting all agravated
