What is it like parenting a young child later in life?

You know, at this stage in life, she's changed my life completely for the better. I grew up in the '50s. And life is different now. For kids, it's all about electronics. I wish she could see a lifestyle like I had when I was young.

You have adult kids. How is it different the second time around?

I'm more overprotective now! Of course, there's still diapers, and the crankiness and the terrible twos. But I think she's a wonderful baby. She's a joy.
