One of the draw backs in having children 'late' in life. We were in out thirties when the first was born.

I'm 38 and the wife is 39, and we're on our first (likely only) child.

I had a friend several years ago that had her first child at 40.  She specifically told me not to wait that long, as it's a lot harder to handle all the stuff that goes along with a kid when you're older.  Clearly, I didn't listen, and I'll have to learn the hard way.  

You did not have to listen ,there are also people that are able to handle it better at an older age.
