There are times that I can't believe I'm forty. I still feel like a youngin'. Then there comes an event that makes you feel your age, like parent teacher conferences. But, truth be told I sometimes feel like a little kid in those situations even when the teacher is younger than me. This past week I discovered the adulthood check event. Travelling cross-country (BOS-SFO) with your two kids and husband. Packing for the household. Keeping the infant calm on a 6 hour plane-ride. Making sure you have snacks for every bit of the excursion. Yup, I got my parenthood travel badge this past week. And yes. I DO need a vacation for myself now.
