8 Things I Love About Being An Older Mom

I love being an older, middle-aged mom. Even though my energy level is less than it was years ago, I feel like I’m in a better “place” to raise my daughter. My feet are firmly planted and I have peace in knowing that no matter what lies ahead, I will do my best to raise her as a good, honest person. There will be times when I fail, but I won’t second-guess every little decision I make. I’ll do my best, because, as a parent, that’s all you really can do.

Here are 8 other things I love about being an older mom (please keep in mind that I’m not a first-timer): READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Dear Bladder
    Deva Dalporto

    Dear Bladder

    Dear Bladder,

    OK, we have to talk. You have become extremely high maintenance. I can’t take you to the bathroom every 20 minutes. I’ve got better things to do. Like take my preschooler to the bathroom every 20 minutes.

    Your persistent need to be emptied is cramping my style. I’d like to be able to “hold it” like the good old days. Remember them? I’d like to not leak when I laugh or cough or smile too widely. I’d like to be able to go out and not stress about whether there will be a bathroom nearby. I get seriously anxious when I’m at the park and there’s no John in sight because I know you’re going to start whining, “I gotta go! I gotta goooooo! Empty me ooooout!” You’re worse than a toddler.
