A Birthday Reflection

Today I am a woman. Well, twenty four years old, anyway. I have a husband, two children, a house, a dog, a minivan, and I own at least two pairs of mom jeans. I have chronically dry hands from doing dishes and antibacterial-izing after diaper changes.

But on the other hand, I still only iron about once a year. I watch The Office. I just bought a Further Seems Forever cd. I secretly think it's funny when my daughter turns into a sassy pants. I text. I sometimes skip meals and just eat giant desserts. AND.... I officially weigh the same as I did when we got married (this announcement brought to you by Weird Presumably Non Fatal Illness which is still lingering on a bit.)

So, on the whole I am a balanced person, yes?

I am a DECADE older than you and I still watch The Office and do all kinds of not-quite-grown-up things (like eat circus peanuts!).

Happy Birthday! Wow, I can't believe that you are only 24- you are wise beyond your years! Hope your day is excellent, and that someone makes you feel very special today. =)

Happy Birthday, youngin.

You may be balanced, but I do kind of hate you for weighing what you did when you got married. Hell, I don't even know what I weighed when I got married.

CAQuincy said...

Yes! Balanced! OF COURSE! Happy Birthday!
