How old are your friends?
I am 34.
I was 27 when I became pregnant with the six year old.
They are 6, 3, 15 months.
My friends are generally in my age group. I don't have time to make lots of new friends, so they are the same group I've been friends with since I was about 18. I consider my sister and brother and parents friends, and we are making friends of my DH's older half-brother and family (brother was adopted into another family.)
I found it very odd when I was one of the younger parents with my first daughter. How can I be a younger parent at 27? But nonetheless I often was. Many parents around me were closer to my parents age. I don't have problems making friends, I simply am a bad friend to have because I'm SO busy that I feel that every moment I have extra belongs to my children. Then I need time to myself. My core group of friends is very forgiving, and have the same issues usually so that is very helpful.
edit to add: I thought I should clarify. I'm not good at making friends really. My friends tend to make me a friend. I've been pretty lucky that way I guess.
