How many Portland baby boomers remember when they were pregnant, or their significant others were pregnant?
Didn’t the world seem full of pregnant women?
They were everywhere and you were part of it.
Then you had your baby and you didn’t notice as many pregnant women.
Instead you saw a million kids.
They were always there, and they still are, but when your kids eased through the ranks you saw them all for the first time.
You remember songs and television shows from each period you lived through.
If you open an album from those non-digital days and notice the same thing in shot after shot, maybe it’s time for a change.
A mole in an awkward spot is a candidate for change.
My mother-in-law decided to have a mole removed before my first son was born.
She said she thought about it, then decided the time was right.
She did it for the grandchildren.
If you’ve been thinking about mole removal, this might be the right time.
You’ve seen the same mole all your life? People you meet from now on won’t.
