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?

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.

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!
