33 Days Away

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

33 days left until my big 4-0! It's just a number...usually. But when I was speaking to my mom today, I sorta gushed over my three daughters. I'm so grateful they let me get to 40 without becoming a grandma. I would love a grandbaby unconditionally, but being a teen mom myself, I'm here to say it sucks. Everything instantly becomes more difficult. Every day that goes by and I'm not a grandma is one more day my awesome baby girls have to forge their own path. I'm so proud they broke the cycle and did not follow in my footsteps.

So, I guess after 4 decades, I'm taking stock of my achievements and liking what I see. My kids are now grown and making their own life decisions. I look forward to seeing where they go and providing support where I can. Life is good.

And oh crap! I forgot to plank!

    I wasn't *quite* a teen when I had my first kid - I was 21, and Jason was 20 - but we were pretty close, and I've never finished school because of it, and I do wish we'd waited. It's so very hard when you have kids so young!
