That is what my kids hear anytime they ask how old I am and Aaron is around. To say he does not like aging would be a huge understatement. I could care less. I get almost giddy as I see more and more gray hairs sprout up on my head. Partly because they seem to be a bit wiry and because they are such a pretty silver. I have always loved gray hair, when it’s styled and kept healthy.
I don’t look forward to my body slowly falling apart on me but I look forward to the adventure. Being a grandmother sounds wonderful. Being empty-nesters will be so much fun. And grumpy old ladies seem to be able to get away with being grumpy. Kidding, that’s one think I hope I’m not.
Anyway, just so you all know I had my 33rd birthday Wednesday. Combine a birthday with the growing population of grays and the diabetic knee rot* and aging seems to be on my mind a lot. I don’t feel 33 or even 30 (big difference, I know.) I still feel about 19 or 20. I look at my 12 and 14 year olds, who are now taller than me and wonder “who’s life is this?” How can I have a soon-to-be high schooler? How can I have two Priesthood holding children? How can I have FIVE kids and the youngest is going to be 5 the end of this year?!! How is it I’m out of that baby stage that I thought would never end? Yikes, it all goes by tooooooooo fast. So as much as i look forward to being a grandmother and having the house to just Aaron and I, I wish things would slow down.
