On growing

In this radio interview *, a mom of two Magda Rabenda tells of what it was like having her first daughter in her early twenties and then her second one at 45.

It was amusing listening, I laughed in the end. Magda was saying how she was so much more naive at twenty-something than she was at 45, and as an example she brought up a story of buying her first daughter clothes from a store someplace, and a while later going back there to tell them the clothes had shrunk.

And I laughed, because apparently the store-lady had touched Magda's arm, looked at her closely, and said,

"My dear, your baby has grown."
