About

Pushing Fifty and a Stroller is written by Ilisa Aaron Parrish, a mom living in a small town in Middle America with her husband, kids and dog. i-Dsz5xJH-S

As a lifelong overthinker, this blog is her creative mind dump regarding all things normal and boring and unusual and interesting. The posts incorporate themes of love, loss, grief, reinvention and resilience, and explore the absurdity of parenting a small child while receiving mailers from AARP.

Ilisa works as a Flight Commander at a NASA affiliated STEM learning center where she takes 5th graders on simulated missions to Mars. She also writes screenplays and content for websites, and raises money for DIPG research at http://www.themasonparrishfoundation.org.
