Big hair ladies

It’s my birthday on Saturday. I’ll be 40. Where did the time go?

When I was younger, I thought of 20’s as being an adult. You know, having a job, paying bills, getting married and having kids. People in their 40’s were already old. Now I’m turning 40 and I feel like I might just got out of my teens.

You know how when you’re young, you depend on your parents to take care of adult things. And that somewhat stretches into adulthood. Depends on the relationship you have with your parents. It’s just easier for moms to make your appointments and stuff.

It was the time when I had to make an appointment with my kid’s pediatrician that I realized I’m the mom now. From now on, I’ll be the one making appointments for my kid. It hit me then that I’m an adult now. Yeah, I was almost 40 when I realized that.

Another time I had to give myself a pep talk. I don’t remember what exactly happened but I remember saying to myself, "Natasha, you’re almost 40, you’re an adult, act like it. You can’t let people treat you like you’re a teenager." I have to remind myself that now and again and stand up for myself.

That's why I waited to have a kid because I didn't feel like an adult capable of raising a child. 

When was it that you felt like an adult?

P.S. This post was scheduled but I thought I'd let you know that my husband died yesterday of heart failure.

  7. Oh my gosh Natasha! I was all set tell you Happy Birthday, to remind you to keep acting young. Life is too hard to take ourselves too seriously. THEN I read your P.S. I am so sorry. Remember you are loved. Even when you are alone, your friends out here are with you. Email me or other people you have out here in Blogland if you need. And most of all, be good to yourself. Take the time to mourn and heal. Much love and hugs, Rasz
