I had my kids at 29 and 36 and i'm soon to be 50 in november. My oldest , Devi, is soon-to-be-21 in march and my youngest, Kiera is soon-to-be-14 in march. I always wanted to have my second child when i was 34 so their gap wouldn't be as large, but sadly it ended in miscarriage only to have my wonderful daughter when i was 36. Kiera is always very depressed of my age. I don't feel old, and i'm very fit! But she keeps crying, a lot. She's afraid that i'm going to pass away young and that when she's older, her mom will be the first to pass as all her friends' parents had them young (or they are the oldest child so obviously their parents would be younger) Kiera also wishes her dad was younger (he's only a year old then me and very athletic) but when she asked him if he wished he was younger, he just replied, "growing up in the 60's was the best, I wouldn't change it for the world." I love his answer but I also feel sorry for Kiera, I wish I could make me her feel better but her sister also complains that I had her 'old.' 29 is not old either. Have any of you 'older' moms ever have your kids complain about your age?
