Oh to be 29 again

Here I sit. Another year older. The more time goes by, the older I get. Can you believe that? I remember when I used to think people my age were" gettin' up there". I think I can now be considered "middle aged". What's up with that!?!?!?!?!?! I guess being 41 wouldn't be so bad if my biological clock weren't ticking. Ugh ... did I say 41? Just can't wrap my head around that. And I'm gonna be 50. When? Someday. (What movie is that from? Hint: In the movie she says "And I'm gonna be 40" instead of 50 ... anyway ...) It's probably safe to say I wouldn't be feeling my age so deeply if I didn't have a two and a half year old. Let me give you the Reader's Digest version of my day today:

During shower/getting ready time: little guy takes bottle of sesame oil and pours it everywhere.

During computer time: little guy takes everything out of my purse and uses my lipstick to draw on the TV and wall.

During lunch at restaurant: little guy screams/cries/yells "I'm so mad!" then abruptly falls asleep half way through.

During lunch at restaurant: notice rash on little guy's face that looks disturbingly like measles. False alarm, fortunately, but found out from doc it was a post viral rash that is accompanied by irritability. Understatement of the year.

During what should have been nap time: little guy has several trips to time out for messing around in the junk drawer.

During getting ready for date with daddy time: little guy gets black Sharpie permanent marker out of junk drawer and draws on the carpet. Yes I said carpet.

During visit at auntie's house while mommy and daddy are on a date: little guy is an angel.

It's a conspiracy! I was sure I was going to find my little guy tied up out on the front porch with a big sign saying, "Never come back!" when I went to pick him up. But no, when mommy isn't around he loses interest in his "Let's see if we can make the grown ups blubber in a corner" game. And yes, I do still want another one. Go figure.

Just think of it that he's molding your character. What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger...I think. :p Happy Birthday! You don't look a day over 30! :)

Don't you know it's rude to talk about my mama...she died last year when she was 46, before she could teach me not to lie to my elders. :P

Sometimes your blog scares me! Huge smile and giggle! I hope that despite all the trouble with Jonah that you had a great birthday!

Oh I can't wait to squeeze the crap out of him this weekend. Not literally of course. Make sure he knows that... :)
