SECTION 4: TIPS FOR BOOMERS
BY Mike Bellah "If anything can go wrong, it will." You are acquainted with Murphy's Law. You know by experience that the other line always moves faster at the grocery store, that remodeling projects always take longer and cost more than you expect, and that nothing is ever as easy as it looks. But did you know Professor Murphy also has laws for the midlifer? He does. Following are some I have noticed.
On the empty nest
On the midlife crisis
On life expectancy

SECTION 5: PRESPECTIVES
The Nineties Mom by Rita Kennen Two women are talking, getting dressed after a workout at the health club. Their daughters are around the same age, waiting for them downstairs in day care. "You know, Halloween was great, we did kid stuff all day, and I didn't get burned out," said Nicole. "I know, the party at preschool was so sweet, and the trick or treating was so much fun this year," exclaimed Rita. Nothing unusual here right? Not unless you knew that Nicole is 27, Rita is 47. Both are moms of preschoolers and if you do the math you'd know Rita is old enough to be Nicole's mom. Motherhood in the nineties is crossing over all the old boundaries. Midlife baby boomer mommies are sharing toddler tales with mothers young enough to be their daughters. Today's technology has made it possible for women to postpone having children until way into their forties. Are we messing too much with mother nature's plan, or just widening the variety of experiences that make a motherhood a more attractive neighborhood to live in? Most mothers rely on their support network of other moms. Age used to be a common dominator. Find a group of kids the same age and most of the mothers were close in age as well. It was rare to see a woman over forty with a toddler at preschool. Opportunities for personal growth on the parenting playground are changing. The span for women's childbearing years is growing longer, and women are playing and learning with mothers of all ages. The wisdom and life experiences of the 47 year old sparkles when tempered with the fire of youth..and 27 year old impatience mellows when alongside an experienced touch. The children are the winners here..they learn that moms come in all sizes, colors and ages. Rita Kennen is webmaster of Midlife Mommies http://www.midliemommies.com. A site for baby boomer parents of young children. She is the midlife mother to a four year old daughter. =================firstname.lastname@example.org=========================== "God could not be everywhere, therefore he created mothers Jewish proverb Visit "Midlife Mommies" a site for friendship and support http://www.midlifemommies.com
