When one of my good friends was pregnant, we were out walking in a more upscale shopping district, and we passed a children’s store that was full of bright, precious, fancy items for children.
Was it practical?
No. And my friend even commented, “This is a good shop for Grandma and Grandpa gifts.” Translation: this was definitely more special occasion items. Not really practical for a parent who needs durable onesies (unfortunately no sequins and bows) and needs them in bulk!
But little did my friend know, she gave me some comfort.
I don’t have any children, and I’m not a grandma and grandpa – but I can be that special person that buys the product with a little extra. I can bring over the item that is not always necessary, but definitely fun.
In essence, I can help create that special occasion, while the children in my life can be mine.
Aging While Childless Entries: I want to help empower those who (for whatever reason) are living childless, so that they can further embrace their situation and find joy. A life filled with children is a life filled with treasures---but so is a life without children.
