I was walking with my stroller (baby happily strapped in) in my residential neighborhood on a smoothly-paved sidewalk with disability-accessible curbs. I stopped briefly to adjust my baby's hat or socks only to be barraged by two teenage skate-boarders racing to school. Yes, racing. The disability-accessible sidewalks make racing on a skateboard as easy as taking an uninterrupted walk with a stroller. Luckily, I was able to remove my stroller from the sidewalk to the grassy area next to it. Close call- just another example of my latest milestone-marker of life.
I have graduated to middle-aged mom.
