In this section you will find articles I thought were interesting or useful. There is a glitch though. NY Times lets you read a certain amount of articles for free but then you have to subscribe ($15 a month) ten articles. When I called them and asked about the number, they first said 10 articles a month, then changed it to 10 articles altogether no matter in what time period. So I don’t know now. I think the guy was not sure himself. I haven’t posted more than 10 articles so far anyway but once we get to that point, please, let me know if you are actually able to read them. But I might keep posting them anyway because maybe you already have a subscription and will be able to access everything with no limits.

What You Learn in Your 40s
When I was looking at some photos a friend of ours from Europe sent, I realized that a lot of people I remember in their twenties now look like middle-aged parents to me. I actually went over the pictures and then it suddenly hit me—wait a minute, isn’t this …?–and went back to look closer. At first I dismissed a person I met a few times 20 years ago as someone I don’t know. Then I stop to think for a minute. Yes, I will turn 40 next year, I can’t believe it. I wonder how people see me now. I don’t feel like a middle-aged woman. Anyway, I know this has nothing to do with our kids or the way we raise them, but I really enjoyed reading What You Learn in Your 40s so I want to share it with you.
