Its birthday time again! Well, actually it was yesterday. Over the years, I haven’t been getting excited about my birthday, and half the time I forget how old I am. Not because I am in denial, but simply because its not that big of a deal for me.
This is my first birthday as a mom. And I have noticed I look – older. Finally. I see the little bags under my eyes in pictures. The uneven skin tone. My inability to keep makeup on or even apply it correctly (okay, I’ve never been able to do that!). But on this birthday, I feel more secure and happy in my life than I did 10 years ago. Part of it is the Moose, but most of it stems from the experiences I’ve had.
Since the Moose came along, my marriage hit its lowest low, what we refer to as our “rough patch.” But we recovered and we are stronger and happier today than we ever were. I have accepted my new life as a SAHM, something I thought I would never wanted to do, but now I can’t imagine doing anything different. I have an amazing husband and a gorgeous little boy. Here’s to turning 32!!!
