R.I.P. Me

Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings, and several other genealogy bloggers, have recently discussed the book Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure, edited by Rachel Fershleiser and Larry Smith.

Some bloggers have posted their own six-word memoirs.

Mine finally came to me this afternoon. It's my basic excuse for everything these days.

I was older too when I had
my daughter. When I go to
school functions I sometimes
feel like her grandma compared
to the other moms. I think you
appreciate life with a child
so much more when you're older
and I also think it keeps you younger following the lastest
events happening in your childs
life! :)

You are so right, jewelgirl. Whenever I take her to playgroups, I sometimes feel like I could be the mother of the other mothers!

But as you said, I do appreciate life with my daughter more than I would have 20 - or even 10 - years ago. I was ready to "retire" from teaching, and I don't feel that I've given anything up careerwise by being a stay-at-home mom. I can always blog from home!

But little ones have so much ENERGY, and she does wear this "old lady" out everyday!
