Hi there! I’m Debbie Nutley. I’m a retired broadcast journalist who use to chase down stories. Now I run around after my four kids. Sometimes I feel that I’m going nuts. My kids are driving me crazy. But then I read the other mommy blogs and know that I’m not alone. Let’s talk anything from diapers to teens, and hot flashes. I’ve seen it all. I live in the New York area, and like to have a Pinot Grigio with my girlfriends on Thursday. (But if it’s Tuesday it’s close enough.)
If I seem worn out, I have a right to be. I’ve never been able to complete a sentence without being interrupted. Like a plant that never stops blooming, I’ve been a perennial mother of a small child for my entire adult life, aiming for the Guinness World Record. I decided to have my first child in my 20s, my second in my 30s, and my last in my 40s. But here I go again. I just had my fourth child.
I’ve joined the growing ranks of women having children at a later age. So, I’m working as a broadcast journalist until I choose to stay home and raise four children, two hamsters, and a fish. The fish is my pride and joy. Bubbles graduated from my alma mater, studying marine biology at the Duke Marine Lab, and now serves on President Obama’s Seafood Advisory Council.
Older and wiser, I hope to share some laughter, and some tears, and the wisdom that comes from all the trials and tribulations of being an over the hill mom.
