It’s my birthday.  I turn 33 today.  33 seems like a pretty solid age.  It’s 3 times more than 11.  It has two 3’s.  There is still a small chance I could live this amount of time twice more.  At least once more I hope! I am hoping to get all the close-calls in the health department out of my system while I am young.  That’s the plan.

I haven’t thought about: “Where will I be when I am 33?” much.  Not at all actually.  I did think I would be done having kids by age 30 (I tried to be done).  Being 33 feels more like what I imagined 40 to be. I feel pretty set in my ways, my marriage is solid, I’ve learned a lot, grown a lot.  I have lots more grey hair now and the elasticity in my skin is starting to be less elastic.  I admit: I fear the aftermath of childbirth on a body in my 30’s.

This morning after I had a sprinkles banana cupcake for breakfast, I opened presents and cards from family and friends.  It was so nice of so many people to remember. Thank you!  The greatest gifts of today:  I didn’t wake up ONCE to use the bathroom overnight, there were only 4 kids (usually 8 or 9) in my sunbeam class, and after 4 months of the subway not running on the weekends, the service was restored!  But! I got to drive to and from church in my new minivan….oh the irony!

  9. Oh, I missed it! it was there in my mind and then it was gone and then with the time change and lack of management skills it has now been weeks and I missed it. So sorry! happy birthday to the greatest looking 33 year old Ive seen! I am sure your body will hold up well after baby #3, but it is different to be sure. Hope you had a happy day… and a new minivan!??! Do tell!
