So yes I had my 34th Birthday yesterday! It is so funny that as a child I couldn't wait to be 13 to be a teenager and have my freedom ( so I thought). Than I couldn't wait to be 16 so I could date. Next was the ever lovely 18 so you could be out on your own and not be ruled by mom and dad. After 18 I waited for 21 so I could go to the dance clubs up at college. After that I wanted to be 25 so my insurance would go down. Now I can honestly say I don't look forward to Birthdays anymore. Birthdays not only mean that I am getting older but that means my kids are getting older too. Which, in turn, means that I am edging every year closer to being a Grandma. Now being a grandma does have it purks but I picture myself with the white hair and the out dated clothes and think there is no way that is happening to me. But if you would have asked me when I was 18 if I was going to be a mom of 4 children before I was 35 I probably would have slapped you too.
I guess that it goes to show we never know how much we will love getting older. I love to watch my kids grow and love to see the new things that they learn. I can't wait for there 1st dates and when they get there driver's licenses. I guess that means that I will have to learn to love the thought of being a Grandma someday too.
