Pros: I'm older & wiser, more patient, make more money at this point in career, and having kids around helps me feel younger.
Cons: I'm old! I'm not as physically fit, and the generation gap is wider. I want to see my grandkids grow up! I had my son at age 38. If he waits until he's 38 to have a baby, I'll be 76! Yikes!
Pros would be having more assets - house, car, pay back all loans so that you can spend what you earn towards children and their education. You can afford to wear anything you loke and people still feel you are young. You would hopefully be more mature when taking important decisions.
Cons would be that you would be at a higher point in your career and you would have to deal with more responsibility at work as at your home. It can be tough. Also, you may not be in a good health to help your children to handle their kids.
