29 and holding

It's my birthday!! Yippee! No really, yippee! I love birthdays and at this point I have no real issues with getting older. I feel happier and more fulfilled at 29 than I did ever before.

Today the mail lady in our building asked how old I was & I replied "29". She kinda smirked & said "No really, how old are you". So I said "29". She laughed and said she thought 29 was just the age women gave when they didn't really want to admit how old they were. "I've been telling people I'm 29 for 10 years" she said. This woman is kind & friendly but clearly pushing 50. I just smiled politely & left it at that.

Then there was a party in my honor at our afterschool program. They are 5 of the coolest, funniest 11 year old girls you will ever meet. Of course they immediately asked how old I was & I told them. You should have seen the looks on their faces! "29" said one girl "That's almost 30!!" Immediately after that two of them started whispering furiously and came to my defense with this little gem :

"29 isn't really that old. I mean it's not like she's as old as Brittany Spears. Now she's old".

So what does that say about Brittany? It did finally come out that they were all shocked because they thought I was 23. Angels I tell you.

Then they gave me this:





I love the last picture. Priceless wisdom from the mouth of babes.

Anyway, I've said it already, but happy birthday! You don't look a day over 28 :) Well, actually, I thought you were younger too, so ignore that stupid mail carrier lady. She might have been saying it for 10 years, but you are it, and clearly 29 is a GOOD age :)
