my baby's birthday

i'm not sure what points in life that make a mother feel like she needs to be grown up. at least that she is no longer a teen. i avoid the word old for the sake of those whose years proceed mine who i do not consider old but they definaly have themselves put together like the women i have previously spoke of.
Well tomorrow my baby turns four and i'm sure that that so some might seem like a small thing and i'm sure with each of so many birthday celebrations i will feel equaly grown up and perhaps the anxioty will increase who knows perhaps it will lessen and i can imagine that as my other children turn old it won't be as intense but perhaps with my youngest no wonder the poor middle children feel so left out they can't even cause a mid life crisis for thier lovely parents!

I totally relate. I feel like I"m a teenager still, like I'm holding on to a lot of my immature habits and mannerisms on purpose. Maybe I'm afraid to become my mom (lol, don't tell her I said that. She's a great person). Anyway... yes. Getting OLD. something I try not to think about too much.

My baby will turn 6 in January. Holy cow.
