Another Birthday Has Past

This past Monday I celebrated another birthday. Not just any birthday I turned 30! Okay so I am sure a lot of you are thinking so it's 30 another year, oh well. Well I am having a hard time turning 30. I can't even pin point why I am having a hard time with it. I just am.

I guess to make matters worse Monday morning when I woke up, I couldn't even swallow. I felt like I was hit by a mack truck and I didn't want to get out of bed. Happy 30th birthday to me.. Is this part of turning 30 feeling like you are falling apart? As I work in the health care field and felt like crap I booked off sick.

Yesterday I again didn't feel any better maybe even worse. My kids were in school, so I relaxed and wrapped a few presents. When my kids got home we took a quick walk up to the Shoppers Drug mart where A decided she needed to take a HUGE fit because I didn't want to carry her as my shoulder has been sore (again another part of getting old?), she began screaming and hitting me, which I asked her nicely not to and then she got mad at the milk we were buying - "I hate you milk!""Bad milk!" then on our very short walk home she screamed at me how much she hated me and I was a bad mommy. She hit me and tried to bite me. I have never seen this child be so cruel that it totally broke my heart. It was like watching a teen yelling at her parent. Is this how 30 is going to be?

All evening she apologized about being mean to mommy. Also last night was their Christmas concert at school. I hope to post a video of it. I just need to see how it turned out.

How did you feel turning 20, 30. 40 or 50? Was it just another day? Was it hard for you and what did you do to make yourself feel better? Usually my birthday is just another day but not this year.

  1. Awe girl I turned 30 in July and honestly I see it as a new chapter beginning. Out with the 20s, those years weren't that good anyway ;) You aren't old because I would be old and I'm not ;) aches and pains come with getting oldER ;) as for A not behaving, kids have this thing where they HAVE to misbehave when we need them to be good. Mine do that to me all the time. Chin up! 30 isn't all that bad :)

  2. I enjoyed turning 30 (partly because a group of us went to Las Vegas to ring my birthday in)... Your twenties are learning who you are, 30 seemed to be when you KNOW who you are. I didn't mind that..

    It was 31 that I had difficulty with for some reason. I started feeling OLD then..
