'It's playtime Mommy!'
Sometimes older moms also need to catch their breath.

I have 2 daughters from my first marriage born when I was age  20 and 24. My son from second marriage was born at when I turned 34. He is now 5 yrs old.

Energy then and now is definitely not the same.  Then I could play hide and seek with me doing the seeking.  Now I want to hide where I can’t be found just to catch my breath (lol)  This is normally after playing catch, soccer ,WII-tennis, bowling, golf, fitness test and basketball (mini indoors). And not to mention “mummy I’m thirsty ,hungry, going to the loo etc”

Then when energy levels are drained totally the sweet smile and “mummy I love when you home cause we have fun playing” which is designed to sucker you into forgetting about the book you wanted to read and play some more.
