I'm getting old. The inevitable has happened. I looked in the mirror today and saw somebody's mother. WTF? How did this happen? I got an email from a good friend and she subtley reminded me just how old we have become. We're not kids anymore. Blech!

Why don't you realize going into your twenties that these are the days? Why do we just fritter them away being young and stupid? Oh right. Because we are young and stupid. It's so hard to see that little decisions you make at that age will have such a profound lasting effect on the next few decades of your life. Somebody should warn us. But alas, it is too late.

Seems to me like it is time to stop and smell the roses. I just hope I can resist the urge to get botox.

I wish I'd have seen this yesterday... my friend's daughter was celebrating her 20th bday yesterday and consequently she was feeling old... especially when I had to remind her when she mis-spoke and said she had two teenagers at home that she wasn't right. No I guess that didn't really help but it made her stop/think/laugh.
We are only as old as we think we are. With a 6yo at home that happenns a lot when he has too much energy and I can't keep up.
