Ever wonder where you fit in? I’m a mom near 50 and most of my peers are celebrating the marriages of their children, or ushering in the joys of grandchildren; meanwhile I’m still changing diapers at home and worried that my kids are eating their lunch at school.
It’s seem an odd place to be when those around me have long waved good-bye to events that I feel is uncharted for me. I have a 10 year old boy and my 6 year old has Down Syndrome. On the other side, parents that have children close to the age of mine are in there late 20s or early 30s, and the parenting experience seems different in perspective.
Here I’ll share some daily life events, and share my trials and joys of being an older mom. It has it’s challenges I think are unique; I’m not a spring chicken anymore, and the celebration of the gained knowledge that life has brought me to appreciate the little things that pop up.
Although the spot in life I’m in is not common, I’m sure I can’t be the only one. Maybe you’ll laugh, shake your head, or gain a few tips from my mistakes and triumphs. At the very least you may find you are not as alone as you think.
