My Deferred Dream

I always had the dream that I would be a mom.  When I was a little girl, I would play house with my dolls and stuffed animals. I pretended that my dolls and stuffed animals were my babies and I was their mommy.  I loved playing house and pretending that I was the Mom and my only job was to take care of my babies. This dream goes back as far as I can remember. I didn’t really think it was a dream at that time, but rather what my reality would be…some day.


Follow my Journey of Becoming a Mommy at 50

As a twin mom of 3-year-old boy toddlers, toys can quickly take over every room. To keep the toys at bay (twins – think two of everything) we have designated areas and pieces of furniture for toy storage. For example, in our family room, we use a hinged, soft close, tufted fabric ottoman as a toy box and coffee table. Once the day is done, the toys are stored away in the ottoman and we simply place a cute tray on it to use as our coffee table. Perfect for drinks and the remote. – 50 is the New Mommy
