Being 40

Being 40 doesn't make me feel old. I rather like being 40. For the most part, I feel that age is irrelevant. It doesn't matter how old you are, it is how you live your life - what you do with it - how you behave. My Father-in-law is 84, so how could I possibly feel old?

I'll tell you how - having your oldest child turn 16 - that's how you feel old!!!

My oldest child will turn 16 before July is over. I will officially be old then. I remember when I turned 16, what I was doing, who my friends were, the things I liked, the people I liked. Kinda freaks me out!!!

Things are different for my 16 year old. First of all, he is High Functioning Autistic, it's called Aspergers Syndrome. He doesn't do some of the normal 16 year old things (which is perfectly fine with me). He still likes to play his video games and play with bionicle, watch cartoons. But he doesn't hang out with other 16 year olds. I can only imagine how much older I would feel if he did those things.

Not too long ago I was doing some calculations, then I started to feel really old. Right now, son #1 is 16 - when son #5 is 16, I will be 54. That's not too bad, till you figure in that son #1 will be 30! Holy smokes!!!!!!!

So, here's to getting older and not feeling older!!!!

No Need for An Alarm Clock This Morning

When you have the whisper of a 2 year old saying, "Dad, where are sucky, DAD, where are sucky?"

*sucky is the name we use for pacifier.
