I’m finally an adult!

It’s finally happened, I have joined the 30 and over crowd! I know for some turning 30 is no big deal, but for me it is the final step into true adulthood. I can no longer hang on to my illusions that I am still young enough and “hip” enough to fit into any college (and in my head) sometimes high school crowd. You would think I would have let go of this idea when I had my first child and definitely by my second, but still the idea of being an adult alluded me. But now that I’m actually 30, married, with 2 and a half children there’s no mistaking it…. I’m an ADULT!

It’s not that I believe being an “adult”  is all that terrible, I actually feel good about it  but part of me really would just like to hang onto the idea that I am going to be young forever., a perpetual 25.

I know I have many things to look forward to, now that I have joined this side of adulthood. One being wisdom. I have been told by several of my way over 30 friends 🙂 that the older I get the more I will see and understand of this world and the more secure I will feel of my part in it. Of course it’s easy to see how this is true. Even when I look back at what I believed about me and the world when I was in my early 20’s I now see as somewhat foolish and idealistic. I can’t wait to hit 40 and see what it is I believed about today. ( well, I can probably wait for 40) But until then I will enjoy being an adult and celebrate being 30!

  1. Happy Birthday Angela!
    in your 30’s, you can still dip your finger in the cake batter, just dont let your kids see you do it!!

  2. Happy Birthday! I was a bit depressed this year when I hit 31- now I’m into the 30’s! and I have noticed the cake batter tends to stick a bit more – meaning in places i wish it wasn’t!
