Our Family Saga......

I don't belong anywhere....

I am almost 50....

50 year old don't relate to me cause I have 3 VERY young children....

20 and 30 somethings don't relate to me cause I have a 24 yr. old and I am almost 50.....which makes me old enought to be their mom....

I want to find some friend to do things with...but, I don't have a peer group to join....I am an island of me............

I am lonely....want a quilting buddy, a girlfriend to pal around with....someone something to talk to besides my husband and my kids.....I also want my husband to have a buddy he can go fishing with....something with....

Would like to find someone with kids too...so the kids could be good friends and we could all go to the park together...to the zoo...hang out...whatever....just someone...some how....some place....

Tired of being an island!

I can relate to how you feel. I am almost 40 but my husband is 49. We have 5 children between us 28,20,18,13 and 11 and we have a granddaughter. I don't feel like I fit in anywhere either. I have always felt older (more mature) than my peer group. I have resigned myself to be friendless and praise God that I have a great relationship with my kids. But I do feel lonely a lot of the time, especially come Friday nights and everyone is busy doing something and I have nothing to do, no where to go, and noone to visit with.

Kiwi - I can relate to your post. I am 47 and have 4 year old triplets and a 2 year old girl. I also have a 25 year old and a 22 year old. All the friends I grew up with and hung out with are now empty nesters - their kids are on their own. These friends are now doing the freedom dance and have time to enjoy things they want to do. I LOVE my kids and I'm blessed to have them, but it does make me feel isolated and I DO feel like I don't fit anywhere. Hang in there mama. The good thing about being an older mom, is it makes people think you are younger than you are. That's kind of cool! haha
