I can’t believe that I am staring at that number.  I am just a year before I reach the next check box bracket on all the surveys  lol.  Tomorrow, I will be entering my fortieth year and turning a very intimidating 39.  In some ways it is depressing, but in other ways, I am happy to be here because of my family.

I don’t really feel all that old and in fact, I look at myself as a young mother.  My boys are only five years old, so I have lots of keeping up to do.  I have even entertained the idea of having a sibling for them, I really am not sure that I am done.  A lot of people think having twins or multiples solidifies your family, but since my husband and I started late, I sometimes feel like we just got started.

I like to believe age is just a number, or at least I keep telling myself that, so I don’t lament over that number up there.  Whoever thought to make a big deal out of turning forty?  At least I don’t feel over the hill yet.

Here’s to many more days where I still feel young enough to be happy about turning another year older.   Happy Birthday To Me!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I turned 29 earlier this month and had/have anxiety about the big 3-0 approaching. I do not take growing older well.

  8. Happy Birthday, Laurie!!!! I didn’t take 30 well at all so anything after that was cake.
