I had my little girl at 44 too, and I haven't had second thoughts. Not one time. Dealing with any other human being can be frustrating, and life is never perfect, so yes, my daughter and I have had our bad days. But my husband and I have those days too, and I wouldn't ever give a "thumbs down" to marriage or say that marriage is "not a good idea." Those comments were premeditated statements.
I know it's unfair to judge, but there are lots of us who would give anything -- anything -- for two beautiful babies. My dear, perhaps you should have considered a puppy first.
Yes, I'm still hurting. Pfft.
