The Cons of Being an Older Mom

To be sure, there are great things to being an older mom, as I outlined in this post

But, there are also some not-so-good things as well…

– The ability to stay up all hours of the night and be fine the next day was totally wasted on me fifteen years ago.

– I won’t lie, sometimes picking up my daughter makes my back twinge.

– I’m hoping that in ten years, people won’t mistake me for my daughter’s grandmother.

– Did I mention my back?

– As much as I would like to think otherwise, I don’t have as much energy as I used to.

– I will be an older grandparent, assuming that at least one of my children will have children.

– Yeah, that back thing sucks…

    A friend said the reason you have your kids young is that way you have never tasted freedom and don’t know what you’re missing. Plus the staying up late thing.

    I think there are also some advantages to being pretty young when your kids leave home and you have the house back to yourself. My parents were just in their late 50s when all their kids had left home, gotten married and started giving them grandchildren. They’re now in China visiting my brother and his family for a month on vacation. Not bad.

    @TGD- Well, I know what I’m missing, but I don’t miss it any more, ya know? The thing I miss most is the freedom to come and go, but that gets better with time.

    @Eilish- definite advantages to being young grandparents. My parents are, although the drawback is they aren’t retired yet, so they don’t have as much time as you would think.
