You're right in that there is never any 'right' time to have children.
@mamamia-user-482898552 I can only assume that you don't have children, or they haven't reached this stage yet. I am now a single mum, but still feel this hugely, this person that you have spent time with, taught, and yes hung out with, is moving on...just like you always wanted....but it's still really really hard, my husband actually feels it more than I do. I guess we should be grateful that the author, and I, have both had the pleasure of raising such amazing kids that we want to hang out with them. Xx. PS. If you do have kids and just haven't reached this stage yet, at least you know have a warning, it's heartbreaking ❤️
