Pregnant after 35


Hi, I just found our we're expecting #7! Wow! Guess who's in the market for a 12-passenger van. Craziness!

 Anyway, I wanted to introduce myself. I just turned 39 years old and am happily married for 18+ years to my lawyer hubby. We live in TX. We have five boys and one girl. Our oldest is 15 years old and our youngest is 15 months old. How many people can say that, eh? Half of our kids are Clomid babies. The other half were "freebies." I love 'em all!

In the few hours I'm not doing laundry or driving a kiddo to a lesson or sport, I teach college courses. I got my doctorate about 6 years ago. It's a great escape to go to work for a few hours a week. 

Glad to be able to chat with you all on occasion... 

Soon to be a mom of 7! Guess who's in the market for a 12-passenger van!

  • Wow! Congratulations and welcome! What subject is your doctorate in?
    Over-40 parents...what we lack in vigor, we make up for with cunning.
  • My doctorate is in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in math education. I work mostly with preservice teachers at the university and with in-classroom teachers in grades prek through 4th. It's a blast!
