DAVIS PAINT ASSOCIATE STORE Mr and Mrs Bill Amon 4-Alfl<sn« (la,) Upper Des Moinet Thursday, November 3, 19SS About the first week in November, I usually write a column about how nice boys are because it is then that our son's birthday Occurs.' There was one about him at 8,9,10 and 11 but I'm not going to write one this year. You see, Wednesday he reached the ripe old age of twelve, and although I maintain he's still just as interesting and dear to me as >e was at any other age, he has lately started reading his mother's column. And he doesn't exactly appreciate it when I gush over lim in print. But I can talk about anolhef aspect of the event that took place twelve years ago and still respect our son's wishes for privacy. He was our first baby and when he was born, my husband and I went through some drastic changes — physical, mental, financial, social and even, moral. For we became parents for tHe first time and we've never been quite the same since. Maybe there is a way to rear a family and still keep your own identity completely intact, but I doubt it. I doubt, too that most parents would want it any different. Being Junior's Dad or Sister's Mom has a way of taking first place and everything else a jarent does is because of, or in spite of, the children. fur coat for Mama to straighten out Sister's teeth. It used to be, a couple of generations ago, thai a big family was a financial asset because they could*all save hired- man's wages on the farm, but if it's been so in my time I haven't heard about it. I have read where somebody figured out how many thousands of dollars it costs to bring a youngster from the delivery room thrtugh college and though I have no idea of the act-s ual figures, I am finding out the hard way that it's qUite a tid> sum. But you can't always measure riches in dollars, and although nobody has made me an offer lately, t don't think I'd trade any one of our kids for a million dollars. * • Socially, the first change you make when you become a parent crimes the first time you decide to take in a quick movie and suddenly 'realize you can't leave Junior yapping in his crib.

The first change lhai lakes place when parenthood comes is physical. Even after Mom lose he tiiding-a-watermelon look o iregnancy her figure seldom goe iack to the hand-span waistlin if her pre-maternal days. Some ody is always saying that mo fierhood only makes a woman ook more beautiful. Maybe so ut I'd just as soon have a nice kinny middle if I could do so nd still have our youhgsters iut Daddy changes physically oo. He Has a slightly worried ook while he's guarding the nest n extremely chesty look wher he announces the birth, and from then on, gray hairs and lengthening forehead from the responsibilities involved in being Papa to the brood. * Wheii you become a parent you change mentally. The minute you Taring the blanket-wrapped bundle home from the hospital, your thoughts turn toward the child. You have to : figure out a new living schedule so that King Baby will have fdod when he yells for it, clean pants when they are necessary and you get quite adept at sneaking catnaps when the little tyrant isn't looking. But the biggest mental change that comes with parenthood is the wonderful sense of all your plans ahead being worthwhile. "Something to live for", is how most parents describe having children when they aren't afraid of sounding too corny, and have to get a Grandma or a babysitter. It's baby-sitters then 01 take the kids with you every time you step out of the house for quite a number of years. An you find yourselves attendin different sorts of social function than you did before you wer parents. It's the young mother' group at the church instead of th business women's guild, Den Mo ther or Scout Advisor meeting instead of a bridge or poker ses sion and Brownie meetings in stead of, and lots of time in addi tion to, the League of Women Voters. For the main part parents are the same morally, as they were before the Big Change. But have you ever had one of your youngsters catch you in a little white lie? Or try to renege on a promise to them? Youngsters can be Mpm and Dad's conscience personified. Most parents hope and pray that their children will be better persons than they themselves are, but we are always finding that, "doing as we do", carries a lot more weight than, "doing as we say." • Parenthood is a way of life that •equires lots of experience. The ;rOuble is that when you need that experience most, while the youngsters are growing up, you haven't yet acquired it. And when you acquire the experience, you find you no longer need t for the kids have all grown up. The only really experienced iarents are grandparents and hey don't need to use the ex- erience. Either the parents of hose wonderful grandchildren von't listen to their words of rVard, City Hall. Polls will be open from 8 A.M. to 8 .M. Govern yourselves accordingly. BYRON P.

'*''?• WJftW MliiN »^..;,,_...U.,....^^^,yianIsI!ftl parenthood is that life is always full of surprises. Not all of these surprises are pleasant. At out house at least, the best laid plans to keep everything running smoothly are always being fouled up. The other day Jeanie wanted to put polish on her red shoes. I can perform this little task in nothing flat, but you are supposed to train the kids to take care of their own things. So, we put newspapers on the floor, got out the liquid polish and after a few words of instruction, I retired to my magazine. Wienie came waddling up to observe Jeanie's efforts. The clog ap proved of them, so she wagged her tail. Over went the polish, generously annointing Jeanie and the papers. The papers were grabbed up and carried to the wastebasket on the other side of the kitchen, dripping a gorey looking trail all the way. The tile on the wall back of the waste basket also got a splash or two. It took a bit of scrubbing but we finally got it cleaned up. That is, all but the tip of Wienie's tail. It's still dyed a beautiful .shoe-polish crimson. • •' • There was a nice letter this wc-ek from Frances Wiesc. She writer, "I have copied so many recipes out of your column I decided I'd contribute one. It's pumpkin pic time again and the recipe enclosed is a never-fail one." She also asks if I have a recipe for pumpkin pie cookies I dun't. but as I write this, the cookie recipes for the contest have not yet come in. Perhaps there'll be one; there.
