I'm nearly 42 and I have a busy, active, fun, amazing 2.5 year old son.
And my 69-year-old mother is very ill. She spent two weeks in the hospital from aspiration pneumonia, as a complication from Parkinson's Disease. She is currently in a care center (rehab facility/nursing home) and cannot move, cannot speak (though she manages to communicate via a letter board) and is not improving. I'm having a hard time keeping up with visiting her and trying to keep on top of her health, as my dad seems to be overwhelmed, and also keeping on top of my own life and my son's health and Early Intervention sessions?and now, possibly, ear tubes since he has fluid that isn't draining and mild to moderate hearing loss from that.
It's hard being an "older" mom of a toddler. Not that I think I'm OLD... but I truly hope that younger moms on the Bump have younger parents with better health.
