Hi, I'm a newbie blogger and to the group.  I had my daughter a month after I turned 40. I def don't feel my age or act it - it keeps me young. My little one is now 19 months and chasing after her and four dogs is keeping me even younger.  You can see my crew here:

MJB, enjoy your little toddler.  I had my last baby (a boy) at age 40.  In those days it was considered old to be having a baby, and people in the hospital gave me second looks.  I didn't care - I was thrilled to have a healthy boy after two girls.   And older moms usually have more financial stability, are wiser, and are more patient.   I have never regretted being an older Mum.

Hi Ciao, I'm glad you found this group, too. Your blog adds humor to my day. I'm now following you. Margot, I couldn't agree more with your comments. I certainly appreciate the Man (my dear hubby) in my life! I think I'll post the "advanced maternal age" question as a discussion.

Hello. So glad I found this group. Just had my first little one 18 months ago. I know I am 41 but I feel 30....on most days. Just wanted to introduce myself. I am a new blogger, pretty direct and I tell it how it is. I would love to get some new followers/friends to my blog Follow me and I will do the same.

Ciao MJB

Cynthia, I agree.  This is the 21st century. Women are their own masters.  We get college degrees, we can support ourselves (and our children if needs be), we have children only when we want to, and we can vote.  Once upon a time we were dependent of fathers, brothers or husbands for everything.  Now-a-days we don't need men to survive . However, it IS lovely to have a man in our lives who loves and supports us; one whom we can love and support in return.  

Today's women are exciting, smart, well educated, and willing to love and be loved.  We mother our children , bring home a paycheck, and  step up when out menfolk lose their jobs. Terms like spinster and old maid can be relegated to the history books.

This morning it occurred to me that the term "advanced maternal age" is as outdated as the term "old maid or spinster."  What are your thoughts about the term?

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
