Baby Boomers-

I haven’t written anything on here in a while between work and my daughter and that crazy man I married life has been somewhat hectic but I’m back. As I titled this young mothers working that is what we are, children and grandchildren of #babyboomers.  While we want to believe our family will live forever and there is no was so and so wont reach 100 before they pass, that’s not always the case. I spoke with a man today while at work in his early 90’s sharp as a whip a little slow on the draw and I hope that I will see that with my parents and grandparents. until recently I was very much a home body until I married my husband I still lived at home with my grandfather and I was ok with that. But as I saw him getting up there in age a fear crept over me that I’ve always tried to shake off. “What if I come home and he’s gone?” What the hell would I do? The most simple answer I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA. I would be crushed devastated and just all around lose it. I love my grandparents ALL of my grandparents and to no longer have them around… I just don’t know. Now if anyone knows me they know I worry, I panic, and am an all around mess but at the thought of losing one  of the most important people in my life I think it is understandable that we as mothers need to take better care of ourselves. While we are so busy taking care of our kids, significant others, parents, grandparents,  We need to be taking care of ourselves as well because these same fears I am having will be the same ones my child has or grandchildren or younger generations that grown up knowing me and I want to be around as long as possible. So take some time to pamper yourselves, make sure you are eating, getting enough sleep, working out, going to the doctor. Do everything you can to make sure that when you leave while it may hurt your family at least your tried your best to be here as long as you could gor yourself and for them because let’s be honest without the head of our family whoever they may be at this moment there is no telling where we would be.
