40 Plus MOMS

Raising children at 40

Firsts

With kids comes many firsts:  first day home, first diaper change; first solid meal; first birthday, first day at daycare, first day at school. You get the idea, the list is infinite.   What makes these firsts a little different for a first-time 40 year-old mom versus a twenty year-old? 

Granted the experiences themselves may be the same between an older mom and a younger one;  dropping off a child at daycare will likely be difficult for both.  But there will be differences on how each age group deals with their baby’s milestones.  A younger mom may have more energy while a mom in their forties may resort to applying their life experiences and wisdom to guide them along the way.  

This page chronicles my interpretation of “firsts” as seen by a 40 year-old mom.   Feel free to comment and share your own experiences.
