I’m a wife, a daughter, and a mother.
A child of the “Baby Boom Era”, I am now caught between the task raising my children and taking care of my parents. I’m also bombarded on a daily basis with the effects of middle age.
Usually, I’m in a good mood and I’m glad because it helps me get through the every day challenges.
I’m also part of the demographics
I was raised in an upper middle class home, may father was a veteran of WWII and I was expected to finish college. I’m now caught in the sandwich of parenting my children and my parents.
