Who me, older?
Being among the older of the moms is a shock to the system.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24
A few fertility hiccups made for a big gap between my kids - and us being a bit older when the second one was born.

So when it comes to my younger son's school events, I am always among the more wrinkled mommies.

It wasn't something I planned, and it only really shows itself on sports day when I am left panting on the sidelines as they do an impossibly fast 100m parent race dash.

Does it keep me young? Sometimes it feels like it makes me even older!
