I am more like a 17 year old boy than I ever was. I grew up very shy and serious. My mother said I was “born grown up”. In hindsight that’s kinda sad.
Now I laugh easily. I laugh wholeheartedly and I laugh like a 17 year old boy. When they sit in the back of our truck on the way to hockey I am in hysterics as they make fun of themselves, talk about their teachers and make simple, flowing, light conversation.
I am more in tune with a 17 year old boy and laugh as hard with them as I do with my girlfriends.
I am so privileged to have had a child later in life. I highly recommend it if you want to laugh alot in your 50’s.
