@Sassygrn:  50 and child free by choice but I support you. The reason I didn’t have them after 35 is not because I am so elderly that I would be using a cane at school events and wouldn’t be able too “run after my children” but because I didn’t want any.

My mom had my sister at 36 and she is alive and well. My parents also paid cash for our college, were able to buy us brand new cars cash, and pay for private schools. I never looked at her as “old.” However, that other thread was for OPINIONS on what each poster considered to be too old. I took it as too old for yourself and not others. I dont understand why people got so offended from it.

@Sassygrn:  True, and I am 28 about to be 29 with none yet so if I do it will definitely be over 30. However, I guess I have thick skin bc nobody’s opinion on the internet really offends me. Like I said, I think it was people saying what is too old for themselves rather than you (or I or anyone else) is too old. I have seen people say over 30 is too old. No offense taken. I’m a bug girl I can handle different opinions. I see you made a similar thread last year and people said similar things to what I am saying. 

Plus, you know it is easier to sit behind a computer and voice a strong or offensive opinion than it is in person. My best friend always talks about she would “never” have a child over the age of 30. She talks about it like it would be the end of the world. Well, she is 30 with THREE and living in her mother’s house on govt assistance. I just ignore her.

@Sassygrn:  Yay for old(er) moms! I will be over 35/36 when I have my first (and likely only) for sure!

On another note, why be momma bear over the internet? Being a momma bear involves being protective of your child, did you feel as if your child was personally attacked? Certainly no one is going to e-jack your baby,and regardless of anyone’s opinion about age, I am sure you are a wonderful mom. You planned for your child, and your son came into a world with two stable parents ready to love him. You don’t have to defend your choices to anyone. Being defensive makes them somewhat invalid IMO. There is no need to be defensive. You made a choice and a damn good one in my opinion. But most importantly in your opinion.

I’m still in my 20s and thought that thread was ridiculous!!  There are lots of pros to being an older mother.  Just wanted to show my support! 

My cousin had her first baby at 46- a beautiful healthy daughter. They maintain a more active lifestyle than my DH and I do who are much younger. Age is just a number!

@Bellagiobride:  that was the same point I was trying to make. That other thread was not about anyone specific.
