and I LOVE birthdays! LOVE LOVE LOVE
I usually just celebrate from May 1st right through the 15th.
Now I don't mean I celebrate as in non stop partying and drinking
but it's more of just a happy to be alive celebratory feeling.
My daughter (13) knows how I feel about birthdays
and told me yesterday that she mentioned my birthday to her friends.
Two of them told her that their mothers had cried when they turned 30.
She asked if I had cried and I laughed.. no.
I said ...and you won't see me crying at 40 either.
It's just a number... and much like the number on the scale..
I don't let it affect me.
I laughed because what I didn't tell her is that while my age doesn't make me feel sad,
I did get a bit misty about the new tube of mascara she now carries with her.
How did that happen?
SHE'S getting old!
Then she hit me again a few hours later with
"I want to start shaving my legs mom!"
in honor of my birthday
I'm having a special in the shop.
Early Retirement for every logo purchased
so if there's one you want...
snap it up fast!
