Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday to the woman who gave birth to me, gave me a home and hugs, and of course, gave me her amazing ability to look a lot younger than she actually is :).

My mommy was 39 when I was born. I’ll be 26 next month.

You do the math :).

    Awww, happy birthday to your mom!
    She looks fabulous! I like hearing about moms in their 30s because it gives me hope I don’t have to settle down too soon 🙂

      Yeah, my mom was 39 when she had me, which these days isn’t TOO uncommon, but back in the 1980s people seemed to be having children younger than that, so it was definitely uncommon.

      It’s really amazing how much medicine has come since then too. They did all these tests on my mom to make sure I was okay, and didn’t have like Down’s Syndrome or something- it was like back then, just being pregnant at 38 was a high-risk pregnancy and now that’s not so much the case.

      Since my mom was older when she me, it’s kinda nice because it’s more accepted in my family that I’m 25 and not planning on having kids anytime soon. My parents were actually like 32 when they got married (also very late for that time period) so I’ve already got ’em beat there!
