Aging Like a Mother
By bethmarkley on March 24, 2014
Something in the act of tamping down our gag reflex for the bajillionth diaper change, or ignoring stares when our toddler throws a tantrum in the grocery store, or grabbing dinner from the drive thru for the third time in a week because otherwise we won't make it to the soccer game on time has had a bigger impact on the way we see the world than the simple passing of decades.
Of course, they're still growing, and we are with them. I have no doubt the next 20 years will bring more changes, and in a blink I'll be writing about the 65 year old me being super-freaking ninja compared to the kick-ass 45 year old me. I'm sure it will have something to do with the fact I take way more naps and am unafraid of asking for the senior discount.
