Day 453 – #WTF How did he become 24? I literally can feel the sensation of the camera when I took this photo. All those years ago. Raising our kids seems like a blurrrrrrrr. And it’s kinda making me feel sad today.

Perhaps because my husband’s birthday “weekend” begins tonight. I dunno.

Wow. He is at the “What! You look GOOD” stage when people learn his actual age. He has also convinced our children I am 2-years older than he is. And when they were little, they’d even tell strangers in the park, “My mommy is soooooo much older than my Dad!” Repeating an oft told lie! I’d glare at him and he’d look at me in shocked disbelief asking, “What?!”

Gawd! There is soooooo much they had to unlearn from him. Or at least, learn NOT to repeat.

The beatings still continue as they’re all entering adulthood. “Mom” has been replaced with “Shawty” or “Shorty” and a palm to my forehead seems to effortlessly hold me back from actually striking them.

This milestone birthday is seemingly striking my husband, and I’m sort of feeling sideswiped. A little past mid-life makes looking backward farther than your forward. And if it’s a blur, then it makes you question where you’ve been and what you’ve accomplished with the gift of life.

I’m wearing a pair of pants today that seem tighter than when I bought them. I’m hoping they shrank. #FML. Just a reminder…live in the moment…and only I have the power to make my tomorrow memorable. Not that raising our knuckleheads hasn’t been. I admit I’m looking forward to seeing them become the best versions of themselves. #notreadyforgrandchildren
