May 8 – 14, 2011

Motherhood is a challenge at any age, and if you have young children when you’re 35 or older, it can be quite an adjustment. This week is dedicated to moms with more life experience than baby experience. Now, and throughout the year, it is empowering to connect with peers and share the trials and tribulations that child-rearing may encompass when you parent later in life.
