OH MY LANDS...I laughed out loud. AMEN AMEN AMEN AMEN!!!! This was my favorite paragraph:My mother's generation didn't have the time to obsess. They plopped their toddlers down in playpens while they cleaned their own houses, cooked their own meals and tried to save money in what was a far less affluent era. My mother reminisced recently that she used to leave me as an infant napping in my stroller outside on our porch in New Jersey. Under the watchful eyes of our dog. ("He was a very caring dog," she says, only slightly defensively.) Motherhood had a slightly careless feel, but I had a wonderful childhood.
Fun article... made me laugh and remember. Oh the joys of motherhood!
