The countdown to 30.

Today during circle time with my kinders, we were doing the usual...sharing how we feel, talking about the weather, measuring a turtle we've been growing in water, doing our classroom calendar, etc... We always put holidays and birthdays on the calendar, to help us excitedly count down to the big day and as most of you know, my birthday is next week AND I'll be turning 30. Today, one of the kids asked how old I was going to be. This is how the conversation went...

Kid: "How many will you be when it's your birthday?"

Me:" I'm going to be turning 30 years old."

Kid: Blank stare. Followed by, "That's so many. Soon you'll be 100 and then you'll die!"

Other Children: All staring at me with very serious expressions on their faces, nodding their heads in total agreement.

Me: "Yes, it is a bit old, isn't it? Thank you for reminding me."

You are just a baby yet. Happy Birthday a little early, just in case I can't contact you on the 12th. I will take you out in Sept. when you are home and treat you to something you like. Have happy days, dupie!!

Love Pippy CS

Thirty is a good age. You are, unquestionably, an adult. You can do what you want. It's also a good age to start a family, Miss I'm-tired-and-having-cravings-and-the-stomach-flu. :)

Just think... No matter how old you get, Steve will always be older.

lol! Love your kids!

I hope 30 is as great for you as it has been for me and that you get to celebrate with great friends...

We will have to do something to celebrate it together when you come over!

Ha, kids are hilarious when it comes to those things....
Remember that "age" it is only in our minds and that the older we are the wiser and more experienced we get.
Landing on 30th land is actually nicer than you think... you'll see what I am talking about... I am running almost to the 40th (couple more years though) but still having a great time!! =) Enjoy it!!!
