When Parents Were Hot

December 27, 2018
   Kids are in the house, and by "kids" I mean Deena Bean, 38, and her kids, five and one-and-a-half.

   Lots of laughs and fun (hiding dinosaurs and building fires in the fireplace AND in the studio stove!).

   One of the zanier aspects of being a grandparent is the notion that we are perceived as being over the hill. And, while I might argue with the status of exactly where the hill is, I have to admit I can see the slope down the other side from here. And, full disclosure, when I was a kid it was very hard for me to ever imagine that my parents or grandparents were ever young and spry and, well, sexy.

Hot Parents Once Upon A Time

“Is there anything as incredible as the love story of your own parents? Anything as hard to grasp as the fact that those two over the hill players, permanently on the disabled list, were once in the starting lineup?”
—Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex
