The joys of be­ing an older mum

YOURS (UK) - - Over To You -

■ Re­gard­ing the re­cent let­ter about the joys of be­ing an older mum; af­ter rais­ing two daugh­ters, much to my sur­prise I found I was preg­nant again 17 years af­ter the youngest! My daugh­ters took great de­light teas­ing me about it say­ing, ‘those talks you gave us Mum, wasn’t Dad lis­ten­ing?’

My late bless­ing was born when I was 42. We called him Daniel, which means ‘gift from God’. I en­joyed ev­ery mo­ment of ev­ery day as we never had the money wor­ries of the early days. This time I knew what I was do­ing and with all the mod­ern-day ap­pli­ances, this time it was a breeze. Yes I got tired more but I had more pa­tience. The only grief I got was from younger mums who couldn’t un­der­stand why I wanted to go through it all again. So, ask me about be­ing an older mum – I’d do it all again.
