The Benefits of Being a "Repeater" Late-in-Life Mom

With thanks to my friend, Janet, here is one mommy-come-lately’s quick take on the advantages and disadvantages of having a “caboose kid.”

Benefits:

Seeing life again from a child’s point of view
Making sure family vacations happen with fun side trips
Rediscovering playgrounds and fast food restaurants with play areas
Acquiring lots of fresh anecdotes for writing projects

Challenges:

Getting used to noise and a messy house again
Struggling with energy and strength issues
Dealing with being mistaken for the grandma
