I had my first child at the "normal" age of 25, divorced, then remarried and had my younger two at ages 38 and 40. Well they'are getting a little more independent now. I enjoyed the postings. I could really relate to not relating with the younger moms. I also had moved to the area and didn't know anyone except my husband. Luckily I live in a really stable community. I had an interesting experience though when I was at the school event where all the high school  seniors and their parents were ordering their props for graduation. I saw so many kids and parents that had been in pre-school with my daughter. It really gave a sense of the passages and growth of our families.

TinaBelle, I've been parenting for 34 years, the last one is being raised as an only child and he's 11.  I don't know anything but mothering and I'm still loving it.

Hi, welcome.  I have been a mom for 26 years in June. 

Do you ever wonder if anyone will ever call you by your first name and not mom?

I  I     I've been a mom for 38 years now. I started at a younger age and would really like to share some of my hard won  battles with younger moms but in my experience they always seem to get a little intimidated(?). So I'd be say, at the playground and to avoid the inevitable comments of "you look too young to be a gm" and the resulting uncomfortable silence after I said thanks, I just started telling every one I was an aunt !  Out of the kids' earshot ,of course.cat
