Chad and Anna came by for dinner last night and brought their (almost) two-year-old daughter, Alexandra. We’re surrounded lately, it seems, with the small children of our friends, all of whom are closer to our age than the typical ages of the parents of toddlers and little kids. All just part of the trend of couples becoming parents later in life, I guess. (As opposed to how kids used to be cranked out at 19, 22, 24 and so on.)

Anyway, off the top of my head I can think of Chad and Anna. Jim and Lynne. John and Elisa. Tam and Joe. Chris and Misty. Jeff ans Sue. Kym and Tom. Annette and Karla. Wendy and Rolf. Wendelin and Brian.

The Debra is arguing with me about Devon. “He’s six, he’s not a toddler.”

“Yes, but it used to be that the parent of a six-year-old was 30, not 37 or 38 or 40 or 42 or whatever.”

She shrugged, but didn’t argue back.

We are in a golden age of uncle and aunthood, LaRay and I. It’s great. We get to spoil the kids and then give them back!
