Or a "well travelled" mom? We are only as old as we feel! I'm a young mom (well not so young anymore) I'm 26 with a 6 year old. If you could, would you change how old you were? I'm on the fence about it. Yes because I wasn't ready to be a mom emotionally and financially. But no because I like being a young mom. I love to go to school functions or field trips and reminisce about how I was the child not so many years ago. What about y'all?

I'm 25 and my oldest will be 4 in March. I wouldn't change it. I was in a long-term relationship and we're now married with our 3rd baby on the way.

LOL at 26 not being young.

I wouldn't change the age I became a mother for anything.  I was 31, financially stable, and able to provide my children with experiences most parents will only dream of.

I also did and accomplished what I wanted to in life.  Neither my kids nor I have to sacrifice anything.

I wish more people would wait.  Kids should see and experience as much as they can, and they need more than love to live on.  What's the rush anyway?  I will take what I am able to provide for my kids over having them earlier 7 days a week.  I see no benefit at all in having them earlier.

I'm not young or old, I don't think. I'm 29, had #1 when I was 24.

I was 24 when my DS was born. He is and will remain our one and only. I always said when I was younger I wanted to be married and have my first kid by the time I was 25. I dont know where I came up with that number, but it worked out. 

I would not change things.

I'm 23, and have 4 children. My oldest is 7, I was 15 when I got pregnant with her and had her. It wasn't planned, and it wasn't something I'd ever wanted. My other three children, who are 2, 13 months, and 3 weeks, were planned, my youngest is even adopted, so yes, I love being a young mother. I wouldn't change anything about my past, I have my beautiful daughter because of it, and my life would not be what it is, had I not had her so young.
