That comment you made struck a cord with me as well... my mother was 28 when she had me (her third child), and when she died of a brain aneurysm at 36, I was 7 years old... and she missed all those fun things in my life.
I am so glad I didn't have your perspective on being an older mother or I would not have my DS today. And I will ditto lorgem ... "Giving birth to children at a "normal age" does not guarantee that you'll live to see and support your children and their accomplishments and help them through hard times. No one knows what life has in store for us. Please remember this"
