I don't mean to be rude but both kids left home and your just turning 40 :shock: You must have had an early start :wink:

i'm 29 and expecting my second in April. i'd rather have em young(ish). my GF's father left their family when she was 2 and went on to have a second family. he's in his 50's and has a 5year old, 7 year old, 13 year old and a 15 year old. i could not do at 50, what i am doing now at 29!

he's been bringing up children for most of his life!!.....:?

Yes there are definitely advantages to going with young is best, I had my last child at 38, now at 46 I don't have the energy for my 8 year old that I did for my first 8 year old at 34. I used to play fight all the time with my first child but I can't with my last. Life will have to start at 50 for me :)
