As you may or may not know, I’ll be turning (gulp) 30 years old in about two months. While for the most part I’m okay with being that old, there are some days when I just cannot believe that thirty years have flown by so fast.
I mean, I remember when my mom turned thirty. It was a pretty big deal, especially still she insisted that she was still 29 (and even to this day at almost 50 she still insists she is 29). Thirty was old, like grandmother old. There was talk of grey hairs, having a hard time losing the baby weight (at that point, she had four kids already!), and many other things that old people talk about….
And here I am. Nearly thirty.
It ain’t so bad, really. I don’t have any grey hairs yet (advantage of being blonde), I’m married with two soon-to-be-three kids, I have a Master’s degree, I did well with my teaching career and transitioned into being a SAHM, and here I am, writing the story of my life.
C’est la vie!
I’ve been thinking about birthday presents. Selfish? Perhaps, but I know my family is going to ask me anyway. I don’t want a big party like I threw for my husband two years back, so that’ll save them some money. I also don’t have too many wants or desires that are crazy. I’m pretty practical when it comes to me; in fact, as I am writing this, I know that most of the things I’ll casually mention in conversation will be mostly for the baby, the family, and the house, not entirely for me.
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
