36.

17 April 2012

Finn asked me yesterday if I was going to look REALLY old today.  And then he asked me if I was going to have a Strawberry Shortcake party.

I was 19 years old when my mom turned 36.

I’m not sure which is more grey hair inducing… having a 19 year old or having a 9 month old.  Either way, you’re not getting a lick of sleep.

It sure feels a lot younger than I thought it would when I was 19.  Thirty-six felt so OLD.  It’s almost forty.  Forty!  Forty meant that my mom had one foot in the grave.

It never ceases to make me laugh thinking about what an idiot I was when I was young.

I liked 35 better. I was closer to both sides. Now at 36 I am just closer to 40.

Happy birthday! I'm going to be 33 - but I still feel 26 most of the time. Well, I don't look it, but I feel it!

Aw Happy Birthday!!! 36 is the new 16 as far as I'm concerned... I keep telling myself that because I will be 36 this year. ;) Make that 26... I liked being 26.

It's way better than when my mom turned 40.. I kept saying "You're 50..." *giggle giggle*... NO 50!!!! I am surprised she didn't kill me! ;)

And I just think, "Ah, to be 36 again" LOL Seriously, I was so off base on "old" when I was young. Now I say "old" is always 25 years older than whatever age I am! :)

Happy happy! I hope you have a good one!

Happy birthday! I have some of the same feelings...I was 18 when my mom turned 36 (or for my old age now...when my mom turned 41 I was 23!) Yikes! Hope you had an amazing day!
