I had my first son 3 weeks after my 19th birthday. I was 21 when I had my second DS, 22 for my third DS, 27 for my only DD, 29 for m 5th DS. And now at 52 we adopted our DS 5 1/2 months ago. He will be 11 months old tomorrow. Being a mom now iis so different than it was 33 years ago when I had my first. It's a lot more work at my age. But I feel like I know a lot more now than I did then. I know I'm a better mom now than I was then. I so admire all the young moms on this list. They all seem to know so much more than I did at their ages.
dear bf and I had our surprise bundle of joy just 6 months ago. at the time of ds's birth I was 30 (still am) and bf was 22!
most people think he is the older one
I commend him on his maturity and compassion at such a young age - perhaps it is a product of growing up in the city - he grew up very fast....
me on the otherhand..ha....it is good i was older ....i was very selfish and conflicted in my early twenties !!!!!!
so happy now
I was 25 when our son was born and I'll be 27 when this next ones born, pretty average, although im usually one of the youngest moms at LLL meetings and playgroups?? What do all the other 'young' moms do??
I am 27 and pregnant with my third, and almost certainly last. My son was born when I was 24, and my daughter was a surprise to her dad and I when I was 21 years old. I was not planning on becoming a mother until my late thirties or forties. I was never the type to have my kids and their names, etc. all planned out when I was younger. But, as it often does, life had other plans for me. My friends are all starting to have kids now, though, so it has been great this pregnancy in that way!!!
I was 22 when Sequoia was born, now I'm 24. People think I'm older since I have her but I feel so young. Not very many of my friends my age have children either. I'm the youngest mama in our playgroup. Whenever someone asks my age I have to think, I don't feel I've aged since she was born.
Also, Gr8ful - Is your Sequoia a girl or boy? I don't here the name to often and am always curious
