    Thanks for writing this. My husband is 18 years older, also in his late 50’s, I’m in my early 40’s, and our twins are 3.5. I feel I could have written this exact post, so I completely empathize with you. The main difference is that you have 5 kids. That’s a lot of kids and I think anyone, young or old, would be exhausted by them at 4pm on a Saturday! You both are doing great. Happy holidays to you and yours.

    Thanks for that.. I am not quite that old, turning 37 this year, and my wife is 10 years younger than me. We’re just starting our family within the next year and it is the same with me.. I simply wasn’t ready for a family prior to now.. it wasn’t a conscious choice or a selfish “I want to be free” thing either.. it was just life.. that’s how it was and is.

    I have many of the same thoughts, even though I am considerably younger than your husband, about how I will relate to my children and them to me when I am 60+ and they are just becoming adults themselves… we will cope I’m sure.. but I think about these kinds of issues regularly.
