I’d just like to point out that the great thing about being an OLDER MOM, is that the kid wouldn’t need a chair. So. Have you heard of attachment parenting? I managed to get 5 kids into their teen years without it, but now that I think about it, I was a fool. I only nursed my kids for a year. All that money wasted on those little boxes of fruit drinks for the soccer team? With some jumping jacks, I could have served milkshakes. This attachment parenting thing makes so much sense, especially for the menopausal mom. I can think of a ton of ways we could share. “When I’m done wiping you, you do me, honey.” And, we could gum our peas together, spit up together and share diapers when the child is older. I mean, if we’re not going to wean, why potty train?
I have always dreaded the empty nest. This way, I don’t have to. Independence is totally over-rated. In fact, I’m thinking about starting a movement: Never-ending breastfeeding. This way, I can feed the grandchildren. I love our society today. We just never seem to know when enough is…enough.
