Turning The Big Three Five

Turning The Big Three Five

birthday

Happy Birthday to me! Today is June 24th and today I turn 35 years old. Woah…..let that sink in for a moment because when I just read what I wrote I feel like my heart stopped for a moment. Can I really be 35? After today I am rounding the corner to 40 and that just seems bat Sh$& crazy! The good news is that although I sometimes feel super old, I am OK with it. Thus far I think I’ve taken all my milestone birthdays in stride and I think a big reason for that is that I have been happy with where my life was at each of those points. The same can be said for 35. I welcome this year ahead of me because things are good….and that’s all one can ask for.

It’s funny to see wrinkles on my face. Odd is a better word because I honestly don’t feel old. I feel like a little girl sometimes really, but I’m not.  At 35 I am a wife to an amazing man…a mom to two amazing children, and life is good. I drive a white mini van, I go to mommy and me classes and am class mom. Living the suburban dream my friends!

Sometimes I look around and wonder how it could be that I am an adult. Like how am I in charge of a family and two small children? Am I really that responsible? My head spins daily with questions and decisions I have to make and I sometimes can’t believe it. Its during those times that I want to curl up in a ball and cry for my own mommy when I realize that I too am a mom….Its on me to be strong and be a grown up. Damn that’s hard sometimes!

For my 35th birthday we will be celebrating in fire island with some friends. I know my son will make sure we get some sort of cake or cupcake so that I can blow out the candles, and we will mark the day as one to remember. Someone needs to be responsible so drinking all day isn’t an option and even if it were I’d refrain cause it REALLY sucks to be hungover as  a mom…but I digress. I have a feeling the day will end with having spent a great day at the beach with my family friends and most likely a nice glass of wine (or two!) to wind down the day. All pretty perfect if you ask me.

So am I OK with turning 35??? Sure! I am doing exactly what I want to be doing and life is good. I a happy to report No getting old crisis happening here! So happy birthday to me!! Here’s to 35 being an amazing year!

It’s been nine months since Tessa arrived and now we are ready to begin bathing suit season. Oh joy! As I began my search to find a bathing suit that I was comfortable in not only as I sat still in a chair, but one that I could sit in the sand and ocean in.

Last Day Of School Reflection: 3 Year Preschool

As I sit here drinking a glass of wine on the day that was my sons last day in his 3 year old preschool year I find myself sad. The good news is that he has one more year left of pre school, but the bad news is that another amazing year has come and

Dear Captain Awesome: Our 7th Wedding Anniversary

Dear Captain Awesome, Let’s start by saying we have been together forever. Some days it feels like it and others it feels like it was a blink of the eye. For now we will not count the YEARS of dating we did before getting married, and focus on the life we started together on June

Poor Second Child

Poor Second Child

One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone reminds me that something I am doing with my daughter is something I would have NEVER done with my son. Like if I didn’t wash a toy right away or gave food that I waited to give my son. It drives me nuts! Captain Awesome thinks
