In this candid memoir, she sheds light on what its really like to raise twins in your 60s. To critics who said shed be too tired, she explains that she has a new lease on life- at an age where many people think they should slow down, shes empowered -- not just to run in the backyard with the energetic boys, but also when it comes to her work as a psychotherapist, her marriage, and her relationship to herself.Above all, Birnbaum explains, women should not fear growing older. Its possible to look and feel fabulous -- and glamorous, as she proves with blonde hair and knee-high boots -- in our 60s and well beyond. Having children later in life has allowed her to build a career first, something she believes has positive effects on self-esteem as well as being vital to the marriage relationship.As wore and more people choose to give birth later in life, Birnbaum explains what its really like -- and why it can be the most satisfying choice.
