Love this post, I am that child.... born to a 43 year old Mum and a 45 year old dad. My parents had my sister and brother 4 years apart in their early 20's, My sister had been born at 25 weeks and my brother at 32 weeks. Mum then had 3 miscarriages late in the pregnancies and was told to stop. Low and behold at 42 with no plans of having another baby and thinking she was entering menopause Mum found out she was pregnant with me. She says it was her easiest pregnancy and I was full term. My parents were better parents in the 40's, more established, more relaxed, patient and understanding. My sister was 22 and my brother 18 when I came along. I have a niece and nephew older than me. People often mistook my mum for my grandmother when I was little but I had no issues putting them in their place and correcting them. I traveled with my parents and was often was of the grown up conversations. I know my parents worried about dying while I was still young and I did loose my beloved dad 6 years ago.... he was 90! My mum is 94 and still with us. My parents always said I was what kept them young and active. This now 52 year old daughter wouldn't change a thing!
