I really need to update my blog template. For starters, I don't even have my awesome 2nd baby included. You know they say 2nd children get the short end of the stick. Poor Alex. I also saw that I have my age listed as 28. Yeah, that was 2 years ago. :)
Anyways, my birthday is coming up on Friday. It's a biggie! I'll enter the first year of my 30's. I actually don't even care that I'm turning 30. I mean, it's a number, right? Besides, if I look back on what I wanted to accomplish in my first 30 years on this Earth, I'm pretty on par for my dreams. I knew I wanted to be married and have 2 children before I turned 30. Check. I got some kind of education after high school, so that's a half-way check. I'm not at my dream job, but working towards the education to get myself there. *My dream job is to work in OB/GYN ultrasound perhaps in a hospital or doctors office setting* I'm happy with myself and who I've become. Actually, I'm in the best shape of my life as I turn the big 3-0. I'm the smallest I've ever been in my adult life. Sure there are some areas of my body that I will NEVER get back *thank you girls* but I try and see past that and look at everything else I've improved.
So, I don't look at 30 being old. I see it as a new beginning to a new life, kinda. My babies will be growing up, going to school, playing sports (?), taking dance classes, having sleepovers, and being annoyed with one another in my 30's. We plan on buying our first home in my 30's. With kids growing up, they will be more independent which means momma and daddy get some more free time sans kids.
It's going to be a great 10 years. :)
