Hi, I’m Cindy, the After40Mom.

Why After40Mom?

Well that is what I am.  I gave birth to my first child when I was 19.  I was so young and mostly on my own, I often felt I was in survival mode.   There was a lot of basic life skills I didn’t have back then, one of which was how to cook.  Because I lacked basic kitchen skills we lived on processed and fast food.  I became very over weight and unhealthy.  Luckily my child picked up healthy habits from other family members.

I became pregnant with my second child when I was 38.  Wow!  What a difference 20 years make!  Not only was my second pregnancy and birth vastly different than the first, but I was amazed at all the information that was available to me.  Seriously when I got pregnant the first time, there was no internet, at least not in the way we know it today.

Very quickly, I became pregnant again.  This was on purpose.  Due to our ages we didn’t want to wait too long to have another baby.  I was 40 when I gave birth to my 3rd baby.  There is 11.5 months difference between my second and third.


Getting Older = Not Caring As Much

One of the great things about getting older is not caring as much what others think.  I feel free to live the life I want and spend my time the way I want it.  I don’t feel pressured to run around being busy all the time.  I spend as much time with my family as possible and doing the things I enjoy.
