I figured I would used that so you all got a mental picture and say "hi" to me when you see me passing by on the street.

Re: Late Bloomers--Pros an Cons of Starting a Family in your 30s

I think the money thing is pretty highly rated.
I grew up with a Dad who was just starting out in a company and a mom who was a nurse.
They had FOUR kids. Mom quit work to raise us.
We had lots of macaroni & cheese, fishsticks, hotdogs, casseroles, a home that was a simple post WWII bungalow with (if you look back at pictures anyway) minimal "interior decorating" to say the least, no designer clothes, and none of us had a TV or telephone in our bedroom.

Our job was to "be nice" and get good grades.

I had a GREAT childhood without all of the things that my generation is showering their children with.
I had the IMPORTANT things - which are not $things$, but intangibles.
Love, respect, instilled values & ethics, a mom at home (it made a difference I think), the freedom to play, a solid sense of self-esteem & independence.

Thru the years as my dad moved up in the company his goal was not to provide us with everything us kids "wanted".
It was to make sure that my mother never wanted for anything if he were to die first.

He died 3 years ago and my mom will never want for anything.
Us kids weren't handed a whole lot and he now has 4 very independent kids who can make it on their own.

I understand the discussion of money & it's importance, but from a child's standpoint I would never have traded the childhood I had for a richer one solely to have "things", What I gained in a modest home (kind of like Father Knows Best!) far outweighs what waiting for "financial security" would have done for me.

Re: Late Bloomers--Pros an Cons of Starting a Family in your 30s

I married in my mid-20s, but we didn't decide to have kids until I was in my mid-30s. At 36 I became pregnant and had a normal pregnancy; however, our child was born with an intestinal blockage and had to remain in the ICU for 6 weeks. If we'd been younger, I'm not so sure we would've handled things the same way. Financially we're better off, so we weren't AS worried about money, think we were a little more mature. There were a LOT of very very young parents at the hospital when we were there, who were given a LOT to handle. We were fortunate that we had more stability.

Our son will have medical problems for the rest of his life and now we're trying to decide if we should try for another so he doesn't grow up being an only child, but my biological clock is ticking and with increased age, there's increased risk for birth defects. My child's problems were caused by a genetic disorder, so whether or not we'd had children right away or waited, it wouldn't have mattered. Would've still run the risk.

I am sorry to hear of your child medical problems. Just remember that they are genetic and you have no control over that. If you have another child then you are running a risk of having more problems. Did the doctor give you some kind percentage that you baby may not have any disorders.
