For me pushing a baby carriage was never boring. Sitting in the park with the other moms was some of the best times of my life. BUT – its over (and has been for quite some time). As I turn 56, now a retired teacher because after 25 years I AM tired of taking care of children. I am struggling to figure out what comes next.
I missed the glory days of feminism. Ahhh, but I’m right at the forefront for the fight against ageism.
I keep hoping that we Boomers continue to define ourselves differently. We are still a huge demographic group and we don’t necessarily have to conform to the popular culture likes and dislikes of our children. I keep hoping that we can make room for the “wise woman” whose jowls are not firm, and stomach is not smooth, but whose brain is explosive, creative, and interesting. I’m hoping I stick around long enough to see what happens.
