One of the nice things about having a kid as a mother of “advanced maternal age” (over 35) is that I feel young again. I’m doing all kinds of ridiculous things like playing in sandboxes, making forts and walking around in public carrying stuffed animals. And I don’t even care about how ridiculous I look.
