Kelly,newly single mom of four wonderful children.
I was a recent 21 with my first, an almost 24 with my second, a young 27 with my third and I will be a recent 30 when this one is born. I am most likely done.
Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!
A Momma in love with her Little Women-Jewel Face, Jo Jo Bean, June Bug, and Sweet Coraline.
I was (still am!) 25 with my first. I feel very complete with her here. That may change, but I think one is right for me. I used to think I would want several children, I just don't see that working for me anymore. I feel like she came at the perfect time, just finished graduate school, we both have decent jobs, but they allow a lot of flexibility so we can be home with her and not to daycare. If I was in a more advanced position in my field, I couldn't do that. I'm very happy where I'm at now. I'm glad we waited (despite really wanting a baby for years), but I'm glad that we didn't wait longer.
Social working mommy to 10/10/11, three cats, and a dog.
I was 23 with my oldest, 25 with my second and 27 with my 3rd. Im open for more but we have to see what happens.
I was 30 when my first was born and we're still working on growing our family (I'm 34 with 2 children). Most of my friends became moms in their mid to late 30's so I feel like a youngin. :) I like that my 30's are dedicated to child bearing and child rearing - my 20's were so much fun and my husband and I were able to travel a lot.
Married since 4/2004 mom to DS6/2008, DD 4/2010 and one on the way. 52 project challenge: 16/52
I was 32 with my first, 33 with my second and 37 with my third. I'd like a fourth, but I need to convince my DH; a losing battle. Also I'll be 40 in a few months and I do feel older sometimes...slower and maybe less able to keep up. But I think that in some ways that could be a good thing...a more quiet, contemplative mother might be wonderful for the right child, you know?
I was 32 (almost 33) when I took guardianship of my godson and 36 when I adopted my sons. The boys are 11 so there's a 25 year age difference. There was only a 16 year difference between my godson and I, which definitely verged on weird. At least no one is going to mistake Casey and Devin for my little brothers!
I'm in a very affluent area where people normally start families in their 30s or early 40s, so I'll still be quite a bit younger than other fathers of children Casey and Devin's age. I have a lot more energy now than I did in my 20s and would easily consider adopting again or even having a bio baby (if I end up meeting a partner) until I'm well into my 50s.
I was 21 when DS1 was born, 23 when DS2 came. Ex-DH and I wanted a passel of kids (7 was a nice number in our heads) but that sure didn't happen. Now-DH and I wanted to have one baby, maybe two, but that also won't be happening. It hurts that I don't get to share parenthood with DH but when it comes down to it, I don't know how we'd do it. I'm glad I had my guys when I did--so much more energy back then!

I was 23 and he's my only one so far.

I had mine at 21, 23, 25, 27, and 29. We always had an easy time conceiving and the spacing worked out great. I am 31 now and we are done, DH had a vasectomy last year.
26 and 29. I think it was perfect for us. We had some time by ourselves before kids, and then they grew up enough for me to have a second career when they were old enough for school. I was still young enough to try something new.
21 with my first, 25 with my second, 27 with my third. I am now 31.
