Are you confusing "caring for small children" with "having small children"? As a first-time mother at 40, let me tell you, older and wiser didn't do it. I understood then why we're biologically programmed to have kids in our 20s. Energy. Energy I had at 20 was halved by my 40s--and it was tough keeping up with my endlessly energetic kids.
Piper's got it right. Stamina, creativity, precision thinking on your feet is what's required to "care" for children. Motherhood and grandmotherhood are no slouch jobs. To do it right requires stamina at a minimum.
