Hi, I’m AG, the writer behind The Age Gap Mama. I am a Brooklyn-based wife, mom of a tween, full-time corporate paper pusher, a blogger, and a master’s student. Did I mention my husband and I are actively trying to expand our family in ALL my spare time?
When we decided to have another baby, I had so many questions about parenting children with such a significant age gap. I had my first daughter at 20 years old; I did no research, I didn’t understand how to care for my body before, during, and after pregnancy. I was just winging it. Oh, to be young and dumb again. I want to do everything the “right” way this time, whatever that means, while still being a phenomenal mom.
In my research, I was disappointed that most of what I found online was “the perfect number of years to space kids out” – heads up, few people think 12-13 years is the magic number. Or a guest blog post of moms with 10-12 year age gaps here or there. I couldn’t find much about balancing the day today.
The Age Gap Mama was born as a place for me to share the day to day of my journey to becoming an Age Gap mom.
I hope my journey provides insight, makes you laugh, try something new, or feel less alone wherever in the journey you are.
