The Pros and Cons of Older Kids


Pros Cons older kidsI think I’m having issues with my kids getting older.

It may be because my oldest started jr. high this year.

Or because I have a new niece that I have been getting to snuggle with lately.

The contrast between the two ages made me think about all the things I enjoy about having older kids, and all the things I miss about the younger years.

So, in the style of Jimmy Fallon, here are my pros and cons of having older kids:

Jennifer is a single mom of two boys. She does her best to get to places on time, despite being a chronically late person and the fact that neither she or her boys are morning people. She recently went back into the classroom after staying home for nine years to raise her kids, and she credits her sanity and success at this endeavor to the fact that she has incredibly supportive parents, family, and friends. She also has a network of single moms that truly “get it” and who encourage her on a daily basis. When she’s not hanging out with her kiddos, Jennifer enjoys writing at a coffee shop, trying new restaurants, or catching up with friends.
