    My father is a man that says very little, but his thoughts are well known. When I was in high school I was arrested for underage drinking. My dad picked me up at the police station in his pajama top, hair askew, wearing a pair of jeans, and a Members Only tan jacket.

    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
