Can I be 25 twice?

With my birthday arriving last week, I began to think about what a great year I had being 25. We moved back to the area that I had been missing (it’s not Idaho, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers). I’ve made some great new friends. A trip to the beach. Another trip to the beach. A trip to Idaho. Hurricane Ike (well, that was not good, but it was monumental). Homeschooling my daughter. Celebrating our seventh wedding anniversary. Buying our first home.

In fact, I think that 25 was so great, I am going to do it again. This year, I will be turning 25. Again. Instead of reaching 29 and staying there for a few years, I am going to start doubling up. I will actually only have a birthday every other year.

Unfortunately, the husband does not think that this is as good of a plan as I had hoped. I suppose that within a few years that would work out to make him even older than me than he already is. That and the math would quickly work out to him having made me a mama when I wasn’t even old enough to date.

Oh, well, it’s not like 26 is even slightly old, right? Right?!

  1. You crack me up. I wasn’t even *close* to being as put together as you are at 25! (I didn’t even meet my hubby til I was 26!) But I do like your every-other-year-birthday idea.

    Maybe that will get me out of the kidding I get because there are two months of the year that I’m actually *older* than him.

  2. Happy Belated Birthday! Wow–there are sooo many January birthdays! I love it! So, don’t worry about reaching 30…I was but now they say that 30 is the new 20 and usually people think I still look about 20 anyway–and I’m sure the same for you! We have nothing to worry about ;-)
