I had my 2 boys before my 30s and I would not change a thing, I'm now 46, my husband 50 and this is the best time of our lives. We get to travel once a year without kids, we get to go on dates without worrying about the sitter and being home by a certain time. In a couple of years we will have an empty nest and can't wait to start the other chapter in our lives and still be young and healthy to enjoy it.

I'm a young mom and I love it! :) I'm also a single mom due to my son's absent dad but I wouldn't change it. Another benefit of being a young mom:
*Babies mature you and take away the recklessness!!!*
I used to hang out a lot, I was a sweet girl, but I was less considerate before, I was a partier, misunderstanding of life, was less motivated, and I was engaging in risky behavior. Now that I'm a mom, I've grown up a lot and actually kept a job! lol. I've also found God and my life is better than it ever was. I'm a beautiful Christian mom, a college student, I hold a full time job, and I wouldn't change it. I also see the differences in men to be honest. I can discern men a lot better and can weed out the good ones from the bad ones better.

Being a mom who had two in her 20's and then a "Laat Lamtjie" at 40 I can attest to those points. Having children take a lot out of you both physically and mentally. I always thought people who waited until their late 30's and even 40's were mad now I know this to be true and that only because I have actually done it myself. Starting all over again is no walk in the park especially when your eldest is ready to leave the nest in 2 years and your youngest is 9 months old. But in hind sight I wouldn't change my children for anything in the world except maybe having Christopher a good 10 years earlier. But then again accidents happen and blessings increase regardless of age. I just wish I had more energy.
