Holy shitznit. I remember when MY mom turned 30 (and I thought that was old).
Now that I am here, 30 really isn't that old. Right?
While reflecting on this GIANT birthday, I realize I am in a really good place.
For starters, I have a great husband. Yes, he may starch and iron his sweaters (I kid you not). Yes, he may have a 13-step process for getting ready in the morning (of which the steps can never be rearranged). But, he is a great husband. And he is the best dad I could ask for my kids.
Speaking of the kids...I got a couple of good ones. They are really growing up to be fun little monkeys. They are both healthy and well adjusted and I love them to bits and pieces. Being a mom to them, is the best job in the world.
I have a great set of parents. As a parent myself, I am finally able to realize how wonderful, my own were. My brother and I truly did grow up in a warm, loving household. I really feel like the past 6 months have allowed my parents and I to connect better (through my blog and the wonder of ichat), and I know the kids are blessed to have two sets of grandparents who love them to bits and pieces.
I am also lucky to have a set of in-laws who I LOVE spending time with. They are wonderful to me. I know there are people who would never dream of vacationing or spending time alone with their in-laws. Not only have I, but I do so happily. I married into a great family.
Thanks to everyone for your well wishes.
I hope the next 30 years are even better than the first 30!
