30

January 3, 2011

Hot mama and her sassy girl.

 

This year, I’m turning 30.

The first memory I have of someone being 30 was when my Mom turned 30.

I was 5.

I remember us sitting in our car, on our way somewhere and Mom telling me that some folks from church were going to be throwing her a birthday party.  A 30th birthday party.

I.  Freaked.  Out.

 

Why?

I was convinced that she was going to die any second.

She was 30 after all and 30 was ancient.  Crypt-keeper.

No matter that she was a gorgeous, vivacious woman.  That thought never crossed my mind.

It also never crossed my mind that I knew plenty of people much older than 30 and they weren’t dying or dead.

Nope, my singular focus was that my mom turning 30 meant one thing:

I was about to be an orphan.


And now, 25 years (and a more concrete understanding of the life expectancy) later, I am turning 30.

All I have to say is thank God I don’t have some 5 year old screaming and wailing about how old I am.

 

My poor mother.

Even more gorgeous now than she was at 30.
