"Birdhouse In Your Soul" -TMBG

Peanut reminded me this morning. . . . .

Peanut: Mom, your birthday is coming soon, right?
Me: I'm pretty sure I told you twice yesterday to start shopping.
Peanut: So, ummmmm, how old are you going to be again? 24?
Me: Ahhhhh, it appears, you figured out who Santa is.
Peanut: okay, so really how old are you?
Me: [doing the math . . . ] ugggg, thirty-freaking-five
Peanut: No. way. seriously?!

Ya, seriously.

That was my thought as I got ready this morning as I slathered on three different promising creams that I paid way too much for. All promising me a "youthful glow" and "firmer, tighter skin".

What's a "glow" anyway?

This year has been:

incredible
insane
challenging
amazing
roller coaster-like
character building
intense
freaking. awesome.

Some times I think back to earlier times when things seemed simpler, less complex, less stressful & less demanding.

I'll. keep. today.
I'll. keep. these. "glow-less" wrinkles.
And
my washboard forehead.

And in a few minutes........I'll be picking Peanut up from school with "Birdhouse In Your Soul" blaring .........She'll look at me like I'm completely ridiculous......then we will dance the whole half mile home & I'll see a smile come across her face that can pretty much RIGHT anything wrong in the world.

And I'll remember once again, that thirty five years goes by pretty freaking fast . . . If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. [thanks Farris]

[ Birdhouse in your soul ] - be ready to dance.

Happy. Freaking. Friday.

Happy freakin' birthday, girlfriend! You wear 35 well. And I'm so with you--sometimes I think I'd like to get rid of these wrinkles. But--they stand for something, right?

Enjoy your day and your year. You rock.

happy birthday :)

and, uh, what wrinkles? i call them life lines.

Fruit Fly said...

Oh poppy cock, you don't look a day over 29! ;)

I started using wrinkle cream in high school. I should probably start up on that again actually.

Have a super duper birthday and keep on dancing'!

Laurie said...

You're right we just had an impromptu dance party in the living room. My kids thank you. :) Happy Freakin' Birthday (a little early). You'll absolutely rock 35!!!!

Matthew Smith said...

35 isn't too bad...especially when you can outrun most people! But, aging has its benefits as you get to watch Peanut grow too. That's cool, and it's obvious how much you guys mean to each other. Way to go and being a great mom!

Wym said...

Make a little birdhouse in your soul...one of my favorites!
It only gets better with experiences, life if good! Happy birthday.

LOVE you and Peanuts awesome relationship!

Hey, I am quickly approaching 40 - 35 was weird, this is way more weird. You my dear don't look a day over 25 though! :) I have a washboard forehead too...I tell myself it is the outdoor girl look...

Julie Arts said...

Have a fantastic birthday!! You are beautiful!

cheryl said...

pffft- I remember when I was 35...that was 23 years ago. I love every one of my wrinkles as I equate them with experience and laughter.

Happy B'day and you are not allowed to say OLD until you are at least my age (58).

P.S. I did six cartwheels at the end of my strength training yesterday to celebrate my age.

DRog said...
