I am 45 years old and trying to work full time (can't afford not too) while taking care of a 4 yr old, 6 yr old, and a 3 month old. My husband is in his 50's so I can only imaging how tired he is. I'm lucky to have my children, but I hope it is not unfair to them to be raised by older parents.

I am sure your kids are going to be fine.  They will love you for all you do for them, for all the sacrafices you make for them.  Spend the time that you can with them, always let them know how much you love them and things will be great!!

 welcome


bow down   And my hat's off to you!

 

   What have you gotten yourself into? Well, let's start with the fact that you're giving children the most precious thing of all--knowing someone cares about them and loves them. That is 3 lifetimes worth of more value than anything else they'll ever recieve. Merry Christmas to all of you!

 WElcome! I am 49 with a 6 year old and we give her a great life and age is JUST a number. I play dress up and beauty shop. We take one day and do movie day (mainly on Sat) and so I get my Disney fix and then we talk and walk together. My DD calls us the Richards girls (after the Gilmore girls).

But I also have to say I have 9 grandchildren as well all 4-1 years of age and so I have to be able to keep up with them as well.. :)

WELCOME!!!! welcome to cafemom

Age is only in the heart, right!!?? You will be fine and you got lots of support here. I wish I could be saying that I have younger children at my age (44) but I will see all mine again some day. So stay positive and energetic! Eat right excercise (well that will be with the precious darlings!!) and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!!

With Love !! love you sign

 I had older parents, nothing missed out on here.  Well, I never knew my grandparents but I'm not any worse because of it.  Welcome to the group!!
