I became a first time mom at the age of 45 through adoption. My husband and I are now 47 and we are having THE time of our lives!! To the mom that said being an older mother is not good...I hate that for you. We have had people assume we are grandparents...well my husband has...hee hee...and when they say "aren't grandkids great?" we say "They ARE great" I mean, its not like they are being offensive....we ARE old enough to be his grandparents so they are not saying we look old. They are saying we look our age. I usually don't even correct them because I am just SO happy to have him in my life and feel he was worth every minute I waited for him. If they say my grandson is beautiful I hear "he is beautiful" and I always say " We think so too!" I think that with age I have learned not to sweat the small stuff and in my happy and blessed world THIS STUFF is smaller than
miniscule. Btw, we are from the south...not Boston or New York.
