What is it like parenting a young child later in life?

You know, at this stage in life, she's changed my life completely for the better. I grew up in the '50s. And life is different now. For kids, it's all about electronics. I wish she could see a lifestyle like I had when I was young.

I'm more overprotective now! Of course, there's still diapers, and the crankiness and the terrible twos. But I think she's a wonderful baby. She's a joy.
