I turned 40 today. Forty. Yikes.
Still not sure how I feel about that. It is better than the alternative though, so I guess I won't complain.
Plus, I do get to do something pretty special for my birthday. I get to be on stage with my two oldest and watch them perform lead roles in The Lion King. That is a pretty fantastic way to spend a birthday!
I remember years ago when I figured out that my 40 birthday would fall on a Friday. I was very excited because I thought maybe I could have a party or go away for the weekend or even just have a nice night out with the hubby at a fancy restaurant. Well, that is definitely not happening. But this probably tops them all.
I am so proud of them and all the hard work they have put into the show while maintaining their good grades at the same time. It hasn't been easy. Our schedule has been nuts. This week our rehearsals have run from 6 until 10 every night and this weekend will be even crazier. But it will all be worth it.
Side note: One of the funniest birthday cards I've ever gotten. Created by my youngest son, Ben. I think he has a future in greeting cards.
