- How old were you when you had your first kid?
31 & 33. Handy age IMO.
I’ve got rid of the blighters at 18my darlings have flown the nest at 18, I’ll still have some oomph in my legs to do that end-to-end walk of Norway that I have planned, among other things 🙂
Mrs S was 38 & 40, but she’s got less mileage than me so still looks showroom 🙂Posted 5 years agogixer.johnMember
Mr Gixer is running a couple of days late in delivering Gixer Jnr, she was due on the 4th.
Just wondering how old STW’ers were whn they had their first nippers?
Seems that quite a lot of people are waiting till they are a wee bit older, i’m 46 and this will be my first – although Mrs Gixer is quite a bit younger than me.Posted 5 years agosimonmMember
Glad to see there are quite a few “older” dads around. I was 37 for 1st and 40 for second and have been getting a bit worried (I know post event) on being an old Dad, but knowing I’m not unique is nice to know.
We never wanted kids but things happend in the familey that changed our prespective. In retrospect it would have been nice to have them late 20’s / early 30’s but we had no money then, and wife went back to collage, now she can earn in two days what she used to earn in five so that gives us some finacial flexibilty / child care advantages.Posted 5 years agoloddrikMember
33 & 37, wife was 27 & 31, glad we didn’t have them any younger though.
The wife would have another, but am 39 now and am only just able to see opportunities to get out riding regularly again so there’s no way in hell I’m gonna agree to another. It was when the second one came along that my riding opportunities nigh on dried up.Posted 5 years agoDancakeMember
Wife and I both 33. One gorgeous boy. Will not have another
When you have no Children, well meaning friends and family ask “Are we going to hear the patter of tiny feet soon?”
When you have one child you get “Come on then when is the next one coming along?”
My wife’s mate actually told us we were being cruel to our child by not offering him a Sibling to play with which I found rather odd.Posted 5 years ago
