gogi, I was 31 and 33 when I had mine. But that would have been old for my mother's generation, she was 22 when she had my brother and 24 with me.

I had mine at 25 and 27. For me, that was a good age as I'd done most things that I wouldn't have been able to with young children, but I'll still be reasonably sprightly throughout their childhood and teenage years, so that I have the energy to do sports with them, be a "cool dad" (in my eyes at least) and hopefully enjoy the same things that they do when they become young adults.

Different folks, differents strokes though.

D is 5years older than me so he had our first at 36. You go with what you know and I think my generation had their kids 10 years later than the former generation, I'm thinking about the pros and cons of that. Yes, we'd has our 20's kid free and actually went through it all with freedom to enjoy that, which brings experience and ability to establish yourself as an individual (and maybe transfer that importance of individuality and responsibility to your kids eventually). I feel that personally when I had my kids, i could be the responsible stable mother figure that I wanted to give to them. I'm inherently childish so I do realise that some people could reach that satge at a much earlier point in their life.

However, as a parent and grandparent I'm going to be that much older to my kids and maybe grandchildren at the other end of the scale.

Charlie Chaplin fathered kids well into his dotage, allegedly.

Oh, see I had no idea about that! I just thought he was some guy who avoided getting run over by cars and trains by the skin of his teeth.

Teeth have no skin, and I think your description more fits Harold Lloyd. (I'm working hard for you to feel young now)

Another crappity of whatever change they made to this site is the link button doesn't work. So you will have to cut and paste.
