Well, after kicking, screaming, pouting, denial, anger and all those other steps I realized there is no turning back. I turned 30 today. This is a big one and I am nervous. Here I am 30, pregnant, and going back to school full time - crazy right? I have been reflecting over the last 10 years. In my 20's so many things happened, I met Wade, he joined the army, we got married, we moved to Italy, I had my first and second child, we lived in 10 different houses, we got out of the army, and the list goes on and on. I finished my 20's with a 5 year old, a 3 year old and one on the way. I will finish my 30's with a 15 year old, 13 year old and 9 year old. That is insane!
I was also thinking about my brother through my reflecting. My brother was 11 years older than me and when he tuned 30, I let him have it. I made a copy of his key and decorated his house in gravestones and black balloons. I decorated his car, and made him a cake shaped like a gravestone saying "RIP to Glen's childhood." It was a blast and he told me one day he would return the favor. He had a heart attack and died at the age of 37. He left behind 4 kids. Today, I miss him like I never have before because I know no matter how far apart we would have been, he would have done something crazy to me today.
But I am trying not to let this big birthday get me down and enjoy what the next 10 years will bring. So I hope you all have had a great day and have a great week!
