Is there really a time when you stop being a mom? You aren't too old and more importantly you're the light at the end of the tunnel. We need you to tell us it gets better when things are rough. Stay with us!

I've read the posts and it sounds like if you all think you might be too old....then certainly I am...I'm 72...have eight grandkids and one great-grandson. But I am finding this pretty interesting..just been on a couple of days.

My children are also young Adults. My husband and I is really enjoying life now as much as we can before we become grandparents. That's the good thing about having young Adults. You can still enjoy them without being grand-mom and grand-pop.

Never too old; we are the ones that can help the most on Circle of Moms since we have advice for those young moms out there. I am 41 with an almost 21 yr old daughter, almost 16 yr old son, an 11 yr old son and a 20 month old daughter, which we adopted. I also have a 2 1/2 yr old grandson. Welcome to FB Circle of Moms; we need you.

I keep a whole cupboard full of art stuff. Construction paper, glue, glitter, googly eyes, pipe cleaners.. you name it. We made Christmas cards this year, and have made soap (buy the soap base at the craft store that melts in the microwave), we've made necklaces and braclets with beads.. I'm 53 have you noticed most of this stuff is sitting down stuff? LOL

My mum always told me when you have a child you worry about them always and they will always be your babies my eldest is 18 and I have a 11 year old just going through Universities with my eldest my head is saying moving away would be best her and us but my heart is screaming no go to one close to home even though we fight all the time she is my baby always will be and I now understand what my mum meant and my mum still worries about me and I am 41 and I know I always will about my girls they will always be my babies and that's the price of having them; saying that I do think you have to be firm if you feel the need for space let them know about it and make sure they pull their weight around the house too maybe your just to good a mum.

My children are 26,22 and 21! I have 1 out of the nest waiting for the other 2. My 26 year old son has been on his own with an apartment he shared with a few friends and his cousin. He found out the cost of living isn't cheap. His friends moved out on him and he couldn't afford the rent by himself so he came back home.
