All to often I am reminded that I’m not getting any younger, just yesterday I had a random thought while on the bus, I will be retiring the year of Little Man’s 21st birthday!
So age bothers me, but only in the sense that I will not be young while my children grow, but that’s what comes with having children in your forties. There was a time when I thought I wouldn’t be having any more children even though it was something I’d dreamt of. Even when my partner came along I thought that maybe it wasn’t going to happen as we tried for years. Then, along came my three little ones and yes, my older body struggled at times but we did it and they are here and I want to be with them as long as possible. I never really gave up on the dream just because of my age.
