I recently found my old diary.
  • Day 1: still tired from the move
  • Day 2: everybody talks to me like I'm an idiot



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

My mom was 23 when she had me. I don't know how old my father was when I was born as he was a MM who chose to stay with his wife and children.

DH's mother was 41 and his father was 43 when he was born. He still complains his childhood sucked because they were "so old". Apparently, vacations involved FL retirement communities and golf courses, being the only kid around for miles, and a lot of restaurant food.

Honestly, I don't know how older parents do it. I'm 41 and cannot imagine having a baby at this stage of my life. I like my sleep!!

Follow the evidence where it leads and question everything.

Re: How old were your parents when they had you?

Mom was 23 and Dad was 27. MY in laws were in their late 30s when STBXH was born. We were both 33 when our son was born.

It's weird having kids a little later than your peers. My son is 13 and there are people I graduated from high school with who already have grandchildren. Then again I have a 48 year old cousin whose wife just had their first at 44.

Re: How old were your parents when they had you?

Life was good, warm & weightless… that was b4 the light; following it was a mistake. With in minutes they had me hanging upside down in the cold; then came that slap.
Life has gone downhill since then.

Mom was 35, dad was 59! My dad was actually older than my mom's parents. As a matter of fact he was friends with my mom's parents when she was a kid and he was married to someone else. My brothers were 18, 16 and 14 when I was born, I'll let you do the math and decide if my father should have been put in jail.

Of coarse that was the 1940's, different times.

Think I was an opps baby? Or more like a "you got to be ****ing me".

Re: How old were your parents when they had you?

Mom was 37, dad was 34...
was a second marriage for both of them. My dad had a son from his first marriage at 26.

After his first marriage ended, he and my mom started dating and she got pregnant with my older brother when he was 31 and she was 34. They had one more so. After me in their 40s, but the doctor advised my mom not to have anymore children after that.
