When Jack was this age...I was too. Only I was 6 months ahead. We didn't know each other yet. He celebrated many birthdays before meeting me and I celebrated many birthdays 6 months ahead of him. Today is another birthday for Jack. Happy Birthday Babe! My sweet #2 son sent his Dad a birthday card and gift. It was his usual perfectly funny card and at the end the final statement: "Well, aleast you're not as old as Mom!" (very funny Craig, It's a good thing I love you!) It made me think back to when we were deciding on a wedding date. This weekend was the first choice but Jack wasn't 21 yet and we decided to wait another week. I thought it was sooooo funny back then.
When we were this age: 21...I made fun of the fact that I was 6mo. older..I had to sign for things before we got married because I was 21..I laughed..you just said: "One day you will not be happy to be older"...I just laughed. I mean, seriously, weren't we going to be 21 forever? Us old? Heck no! Time marched on. I was 30..you were 29...I didn't laugh...I was 40...you were 39...I didn't laugh...I was 50..you were 49...I cried...now you are 59 and so am I. For now.
Well, time might not be on either of our sides..as you said this morning, "I'm not chasing 60...I'm dragging 59!"...so am I and I hope we have a ton more birthdays to enjoy, laugh, (make fun because I'll always be older!) and the most true statement of all time: "Paybacks are hell"...Oh to be 21 again!
