It really sucks being older with a toddler. I'm 29 years old and my daughter is 17 months. All of my friends have big kids (like 5 and up) so I never have anyone for my baby to play with and she's an only child. Anyone in the Columbus, OH area who'd like play dates? Don't all jump at once LOL 😉

Don't feel alone I'm 33 with my first almost 15mo and all my friends have older children too. The only ones live kinda far and our schedules don't match up. But I'm in Nevada lol sorry can't help you though.

Lol you think your "older". I'm 34 with 15 month old twins! Majority of my friends all have kids in school. I can totally relate though

I'm 28 with a 2 yr old so I know what you mean. My best friend since high school has a son only 9 months older than mine so that's good, but it's hard to find new friends my age with toddlers.

I guess I'm lucky all my friends started having babies relatively close together. But we very rarely make play dates :-/

Ok, I definitely have you beat on the "old mom" circuit! LOL! I am 34. I have an 18 month old girly. AND we live in Columbus! LOL! Would love to play date! In addition to Keira, I also have an 8 year old, Kali. Would really like to find some kids for Keira to play with during the day while my oldest is in school. We're in the Dublin area. You?

Daphne, I've always been scared of daycare because I don't trust people like that, but as of last week I've been looking into it. It's soo expensive though 😩 but I'm working on that!
