Quoting justone_jen: Don't even worry about it.
I had my first at 21 and my last at 35. I've seen both sides. Don't worry about it. My sister in law had her last at 42. My grandmother had her last at 39 after she already had 2 grandchildren. My aunt became a grandmother at 32. If people think you are weird it is only because they havn't seen much yet.
It is not strang, just not the statistical norm. We had a few moms who were in their early 50s when my kids were starting school. Most of the moms were in their late twenties or thirties.
Quoting Anonymous 3: Maybe you look older?
Wow, around here, I'm one of the youngest moms, and my oldest was born when I was 19. I got married pretty soon after I finished high school.
I'm on the other end of the spectrum. I was 25 when my oldest DD went into K, and everyone looked at me like I was a dumb kid. Most of the moms here are MUCH older than I am (mid-late 30s for Kindergarten moms), so I've made exactly zero friends with the parents at my kids school.
