I'm not sure what this has to do with staying at home in particular -- are you just saying that you feel like you had children later than many other people you know? If that's the case, no, the average age at which women have their first child is steadily increasing -- in other words, first-time moms today are older than they were a generation or two ago.
I'm 32, btw, and had my first child at 29, which felt just right for me!
