How old are you? - Page 4

How old are you?
26

How old were you when you started having kids?
I was 18 with my first, 21 with my second.

How old are your kids now?
My kids are 7 1/2 and 5.

How old are your friends?
Most of my friends are within five years of me, either older, younger, or the same age. It's a big group of us that have been friends of years, and there are quite a few ranges in age, from around 21 all the way up into the 30s. Most of my female friends are either pregnant or have kids, and we all started having kids early, mostly between the ages of 16-22. I don't know many "stereotypical" young moms either-most of us just had kids, took care of 'em, and took care of our business. It's funny because about two years ago dh and I moved into a more conservative area of town, and we regularly get *those looks*. Dh is 24, and he looks older than I do, but he's a musician, and looks like it, if you know what I mean. But, you go one town over, and there are plenty of young moms. It's weird, but whatever.

How old are your friends?
a couple around the same age as me, but I seem to get along better with older people. I get bad looks all the time because people thing I'm about 15 with two kids. People are always telling me I look so young and one of these days I'm about to say....you look so old.

How old are your friends? late 30's...I'm always the oldest,
and that annoys me, just like you, OP. Wish I had some older mamas to kick around with, as I've got questions, just like any young mother would.

How old are your friends? early 30's

My friends from high school have elementary age or younger kids. I had a hard time when my kids were in school finding anyone my age with kids my age. My classmates from high school are just getting out of the toddler years and it is possible for me to be a grandma.

How old are your friends? The few friends in real life that I have are about my age. I have some that are older by maybe 5 years and some that are younger by a few years.

Age doesn't seem to matter much now though. I never even think about it unless they act much younger than me. I figured one of my friends was my age and recently found out that she's older. I am friends with a couple of women who were in my sister's class when we were in school. Back then they seemed so young, but now it doesn't matter that they are younger than me.

How old are your friends? Most of my friends are old college friends or people I used to work with. Most are between 28-31. I have a few outliers in the upper 30s and one in her 60s. They are pretty evenly split between those that have children and those that do not.

I am one that has the opposite problem - I am older than all my friends with children. I got pregnant for the first time when I was 32 and I am 35 now. All my friends with kids are just now 30 or younger. I never really thought that 33 was old to give birth, but sometimes I feel that way, lol!

My best girlfriend is 30 and her son is 7. It is not a huge age difference with her, but my friends with children ds's age (almost 2) are in the 24-26 yr range which does seem much younger than me, to me.

Hm. Does that make sense?!
