Our parents were in their 40's when #3 came along

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, February 25, 2007 | 0 comments

I'm the middle of 3, with #3 15 years younger than I and 18 years younger than the oldest. Our parents were in their 40's when #3 came along. #3 is now 30 years old, and our parents are in their 70's. I think having the youngest kept our parents young and vital.

Mom and Dad seem much younger and healthier to me than my grandparents did in their 60's and 70's (the ones who lived that long). They're exercising regularly, have many interests, take care of themselves, and still have each other, which helps too.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
