About Mike Albee

Mike has journeyed through a myriad of career adventures, including: pizza spinner, chef, bouncer, bartender, night time ‘pillow talk’ DJ, IT sales executive, Chief Executive Officer, and nighttime cleaning boy. Not necessarily in that order. Upshot? A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.


  1. Great article Mike. I’m almost 43. I had boys when I was 28 and 29, but then two more at 38 and 40. I often think about now my parenting and general level of maturity have changed as I parent my younger boys. There are pros and cons, but in the end, it’s all good.

  2. Very good article Mike. I had my first child at 45 and my second at 47. Much to Brad’s comments there are many pros and cons. In the end, I think the pros out weight the cons!

  3. There is an eerily similar article here:

  4. Just been told that I’m going to be a dad…… At just under 41, this has come as a surprise…. So searching on the web for some…well..reassurance I guess. Great article, has kind of made me see sense….see the light….. Especially the last 3 paragraphs.
