Why I blog

In 2011, I joined the growing and oft-maligned ranks of online writers known as the “mommy bloggers” with my particular offering: grayhairedmom.com. Why, you may ask, did I become a blogger? Even more, you may be wondering, what gave me the gray hair, and why would anyone be interested?Obviously, first things first, before becoming a mommy blogger, I had to become a mommy. Never…See More

Thank god she's not our nanny!

I read a lot of Mother's Day blogs and articles online yesterday, and one article was about the pressure to be the perfect mom. Moms are not even willing to admit to the every day silly mistakes that all parents make anymore, because no mom wants to expose herself to the criticism and scorn from the other "perfect" parents. Back in the day, you could screw up occasionally and admit it without fear of universal revulsion and maybe even a…See More

Baby Boom at Your Local Bar

Way back in Archduke Franz-Michael Bloomberg's first term as NYC mayor, he banned smoking in all bars and restaurants in New York City. I was, and still am, totally outraged even these many years later when smoking has been banned almost everywhere else, too. I think smoking has even been banned in the southern United States, Ireland, England, and most of Europe, right?I wasn't even a smoker when the ban went into effect in NYC. I had…See More

Other uses for diaper rash ointment: A handy tip from grayhairedmom

There are none. Especially, don't use it to brush your teeth. Yes, I tried it; No, not on purpose; And no, I wasn't even old or a mom yet, so I really can't use senility, "Mommy Brain," or sleep deprivation for an excuse.I was babysitting my niece one day, and we both took a big nap after lunch. I woke up first and stumbled into the…See More

So this old, pregnant woman stumbles out of a bar.....

New York City is not a bad place to be pregnant at age 50. But even though most New Yorkers have seen it all and make fewer assumptions, I was prepared for awkward situations, I thought. I knew strangers might look at me, especially on the subway, and wonder, "fat or pregnant?" I've done it myself! I will stand up and offer my seat (most of the time as long as I haven't had a horrible day) to older people (and that one is a potential…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
In the Madison Avenue version of the world, couples in their 50s are busy planning for a retirement of vineyard tours, cruises, and sunset walks on pristine beaches. GrayHairedMom.com turns that vision on its head and redefines what it is to be in your 50s as a newly minted parent ... because there's no time for a mid-life crisis when your little guy has suddenly discovered the toilet as a neat place to soak his feet.
GrayHairedMom.com is an insightful, compelling, and often hilarious look at the joys, frustrations and absurdities of parenthood at middle age, from the slack-jawed stares of strangers to the unintentionally witless comments of friends. It explores the physical and emotional challenges of using IVF with an anonymous egg donor, describes the setbacks and eventual success and offers valuable advice for those seeking to follow a similar path.
