I've always felt like there are so many emotions that come along with turning 30 and in the past I've always kind of dreaded this MAJOR milestone... but honestly? I'm feeling pretty unfazed by the whole thing.
I guess I have to put it into perspective... I'm married to a wonderful guy and have an amazing little boy... so yeah, 30 isn't too daunting. I'm sure that 31 will be a little worse because I'll be officially IN my 30's, but so far I'm surviving.
The actual day and days leading up to it were great. Mom and I did a girl's day out (with the kiddo) since my hubby was taking me out to fancy dinner and I'm still not fitting into most of my pre-preggo clothes (grrrr, more about that later). Of course this meant that there was a great lunch and great embarrassment by my mother as she had the waiters singing to me. She honestly does this EVERY year and it drives me nuts... but I don't know why I'm surprised :-). She even decorated the paper tablecloth at the restaurant will birthday wishes... oh lordy. Thank you for calling attention not only to my birthday, but to the fact that I was breastfeeding at the table while we ate. MULTITASKING!
It was a wonderful birthday and a great evening with my hubby (mom was watching Drew) and all in all... it's great to be thirty!!
