I too am a older mom, I am 50 with four children ages, 30, 28, 25 and 18. The 18 year old has been my baby for 18 years. I am dreading her departure from the home. I didn't experience the empty next when the boys left, because she was still at home. She is not an infant, but the experience with the age gap between my youngest son and her could be somewhat similar to what you are experiencing but greater since your youngest is soooo young. I fee for you. But that infant will keep you young. Motherhood is good for most women. I have enjoyed every moment over the past 30 years. It seems to keep getting better.
