DAVIS PAINT ASSOCIATE STORE Mr and Mrs Bill Amon CARNATION WEEK-END At Your Grocer's 4-Aleona (fa.) Upper 6e» Meines Thursday, November 3, 1955 About the first week in Nov- omber, I usually write a column about how nice hoys arc 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 sec, Wednesday lie reached the ripe old age of twelve, and although I maintain he's still just as interesting and clear to me a? lie was at any other age, he ha? lately started reading his mother's column. And he doesn't exactly appreciate it when I gush over him in print. * IS * Bui I can talk about another 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, finarHal, social and even, mora 1 . 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 parent docs is-because of, or in spite of, the children. 4 * » The first change that lakes place when parenthood comes is physical. Even after Mom loses the hiding-a-watermelon look ol pregnancy her figure seldom goes back to the hand-span waistline of her prc-maternal days. Somebody is always saying that motherhood only makes a woman look more beautiful. Maybe so, but I'd just as soon have a nice, skinny middle if I could do so and still have our youngsters. But Daddy changes physically, too. He has a slightly worried look while he's guarding the nest, an extremely chesty look when he announces the birth, and from then on, gray hairs and lengthening forehead from the responsibilities involved in being Papa to the brood. * * * When you become a parent you change menially. The minute you 'bring 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 food 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 nobody but an out-and-out cynic will disagree with them. * * * People undergo a whopping change financially when they become parents. Even if a couple isn't particularly self-saeri- ticing they often find themselves giving up a new Easter outfit because the kids need new shoes, a weekend in the city to pay for a juvenile camping trip or a new 1'1O TOO "> O Q f> , Do You NEED PRICES! • .FORT DODGE IRON & METAL ^ PHONE Z-2941 FORT DODGE, IOWA I I T 1 ••> O ) ) O Jl In Minneapolis CTflD-ltthe ANDREWS Hotel you'll be glad you did In the very center of the city- near depots, jtheaters, wholesale district and all shopping.

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 luwe read where somebody figured out how many thousands of dollars it costs to bring a youngster from the delivery room through college and though I have no idea of the actual figures, I am finding out the hard way thai it's quite a lid> sum. But you can't always measure riches in dollars, and although nobody has made me an offer lately, I 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 comes the first time you decide to take in a quick movie and suddenly realize you can't leave Junior yapping in his crib. You 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. And you find yourselves attending different sorts of social functions than you did before you were parents. Il's the young mother's group at the church instead of the business women's guild, Den Mother or Scout Advisor meetings instead of a bridge or poker session and Brownie mcelings instead of, and lots of time in addition to, Ihe League of Women Voters. * * * For the main part parents are the same morally, as they were before the Big Change. Bui have you ever had one of your youngsters catch you in a little white lie? Or try lo renege on a promise to them? Youngsters can be Mom and Dad's conscience personified. Most parents hope and pray that their children will be 'belter persons than they themselves are, bul 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 requires lots of experience. The trouble is that when you need that experience most, while the youngsters arc growing up, you haven't yet acquired it. And when you acquire the experience, you find you no longer need it for the kids have all grown up. The only really experienced parents are grandparents and they don't need to use the experience. Either the parents of those wonderful grandchildren won't listen to their words of wisdom or the grandparents are having too much fun spoiling the children to bother with it. * * * The one thing that's sure about parenthood is that life is always full of surprises. Not all ol these surprises are pleasant. At oui 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 magaxine. Wienie came waddling up to observe Jeanie's efforts. The dog ap proved of them, so she wagged her tail. Over went the polish, generously annointmg Jeanie and the papers. The papers wen.' grabbed up arid carried to the wastebasket on the other side of the kitchen, dripping a gorey looking trail all the way. The tile on the wall bark of the waste basket also got a splash or two. It took a bit of scrubbing but we finally got it eleaiv.'d up. That is, all but the tip of Wienie's tail. It's still dyed a beautiful .shue-poli.sli crimson, * • * There was a nice letter this week fiom Frances Wiese.
