Hi there! I’m Debbie Wygal. I’m a retired broadcast journalist who use to chase down stories. Now I’m a stay-at-home mom. Let’s talk anything from diapers to teens, and hot flashes. I’ve seen it all.
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 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.
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 three children, two hamsters, and a fish.
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.
