Hi Julie, I am new at this. I am a mom of three ages 29 with a husband and three of there own. 21 in 3rd year University and 16 in grade 11. I am51 yrs. old and am remarried to a wonderful man who has three children of his own and three grandchildren also. The reason I can be an old mom is because we are the caregivers of my husbands two grandchildren we have been raising one for over 7 yrs. and he is 8 yrs. old and now his mom had another baby and we are raising her also, she is 21 months old. I hope there are others like me out there that can chat from time to ime as I do feel very alone and cannot relate to any of my friends my age as they are all becoming empty nesters.

Hello Julie, thanks for the invitation. In fact I am over 40 and enjoyed having the last of my six children at 42. My daughter is now 10 years old. After all these years of having my children around me (now nearly 27) I am to her regret still deeply envolved in education :-)....For christmas I had all my children, my loving husband and my parents around me - it is such a gorgeous feeling! I am looking forward to meeting other "special" moms here, warm regards, Karen

Hi Julie,






Happy New Year to you and the entire circle!  I find myself in a situation where I've been offered a great job in my field (mortgage underwriter), but after staying home with my children (girl 6 and boy 14) for a year, I'm ambivilant as to whether I want to go back or not.  The extra income (of course) would be helpful, but the time with my kids is priceless-time that I'll never recoup.  Has anyone else run in to this situation and if so, how do you cope with it?






Hi Julie.  I found a great job that I can do from home!  Could I email you some information?  Mine is lisacarvalho@comcast.net

Quoting Kelly:

Hi Jules, I am impressed that you waited later in life to have children. We are more relaxed and ready to handle them later in our years. Of course I didn't do that and now I am in my last year of the 40's and a grandmother. If you think children are wonderful, just wait until that first grandbaby comes along. You won't believe the overwhelming feelings. Enjoy your forties. Mine are gone. In less than a year I will be 50. Thankfully the Lord has blessed me with good skin and I can still pull off the 30's. God bless you and your babies! Kelly


We started young too - and you are sooo right - the grandchild (in my case granddaughter) is a BLESSING!!  It was a surprise - dad (my son) is 20 and mom is now 18 (17 when the baby was born) - but she finished high school and my son is going to nursing school at the local community college.  It is so amazing the feelings for this little baby (she turned 8 months this past Saturday).  It is exactly what people say - love them, play with them, but let the parents take care of them (LOL).  In our case, because the parents are so young, the other grandma and I help a lot, but these 2 young parents are really doing a great job!!  It is so wonderful to see my son with his daughter and see what a great dad he is!!  Oh, I could go on and on - anyway - hope everyone has a great new year.  I'm looking forward to talking to other in the circle.  BTW - my kids are 22, 20, and 16 - all boys.  God Bless, Wendy

Hi Julie.  I am Lisa in Derry NH with my 5 year old, Adam.  As a working mom I need to have him in daycare nearly 11 hours a day.  He's adapted quite well, but it makes me nuts to have only a couple of hours a night with him.  I've found a home business that may change this; we'll see.



Hope to hear from you.  One can never have too many friends.

Hi, Julie. Thanks for inviting me. I am 47 years old and the mother of Rodney, 14 and Lily 9. I've been at home since Spring ,07 when I was downsized. I was in development for a nonprofit (as an event planner). My husband lost his job when his company went under last month. We are hopeful that 2009 will bring great things for our family! I am looking for a work-at-home opportunity. Any suggestions?

Hey Kathie,



I returned to work after being home for 2yrs. It was hard at first. More for me then my 3yr old. She is doing fine. Talking with coworkers has helped. The day care is great. I made the right choice because being home all day with a little one I lost myself. Now I feel better about myself and what I am doing. Good Luck:0)

Hi Julie,I enjoyed ur email. I am a mom of 6 kids blended family. I have 3 of my own kids & 3 step kids. One has ADD, 2 have ADHD & 1 of them has FEA. Some days are better than others. I am glad that there are other people out there with mom stuff,sounds strange but I hope u get it. Have a good day.Friede

Kathie: are they flexible at all? My SIL works part time and is home when her kids get home from school. Sounds like a win-win but not all employers are willing to accomodate us (sad, huh?). Good luck with your decision, I'm working from home as a freelance copywriter and some days I'd like to take my 2 yo son to hubby's work and let him see how much he can get done with a toddler underfoot! LOL.

Hi Julie, I hope your family had a great holiday. Ours sure did. It was wonderful seeing my 2 3/4 year old with Santa this year. I am having a hard time figuring out the circle of moms. All of my friends have children older than mine. I am 42 with a 2 3/4 year old son. I live in the country and no one here has little ones. I am wondering how I go about finding moms my age with little ones without reading all the profiles. Zachary is a very active little boy and does not allow me much time on the computer. If you could give me some direction or advice I would really appreciate it. Happy 2009 to you and your family. Judy Sinclair
