My Caboose Baby, the one I had six years after my middle son -- at the age of 38. So glad I had him then and . . .
So glad I have him now! Me and my 'baby' 16 years later.

Humorous Video about being an older mom
Quote from Hoda: Now, I can't believe I get to do it. I can't believe I get to be a mom. And sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and wonder, is it true? Did it happen? Do I get her? Because you’ve lived 51 years without a child. You pop up out of bed in the middle of the night and go, oh my God! She’s right there! It’s like Christmas morning over and over and over and over.
Can you see how miserable my youngest son was here? I think this is at a wedding in 2008 , and my two oldest had just been teasing my youngest, as you can tell by the grins on their faces and the expression of my youngest son. So typical of what that youngest son and caboose baby has to take in a house of testosterone!
