Mom at 44

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

Hi I am a mother at 44 to a baby girl who just turned 3 months this Feb. She is healthy happy and a blessing to me and my husband. People often mistake me for her grandmother, or not her mom and look at me like why did you have another baby at your age?? I know I look 33 and feel awful when people judge me. What challenges have you beautiful moms over 40 faced and how did you over come being judged?

You're a bit old to be getting upset over people judging you for having a baby and thinking you are a grandmother. You actually ARE old enough to be a grandmother, so feeling awful because people think that is a bit silly. They aren't necessarily "judging" you anyway - you are simply reading something into the way they look at you that may or may not be true. All you have to do is calmly correct them and be proud of being your baby's mother!
