Mirror, Mirror

Just a word to all those 30 somethings……. I remember when I was young, childless, a size 6 and still thought I was fat. I was quick to judge…”MY child will NEVER act like that” and “Look at that old woman trying to look young”. Well girls…I’m here to tell you the day will come when you too will see your mother’s face staring back at you in the mirror. You will hear her words come out of your mouth and wonder where did THAT come from. You will have days when you don’t recognize your own reflection because inside you feel the same as you did when you were just a girl. Your perfect children will sometimes act like little brats and shame you in public. You’ll find yourself buying that skirt that’s a little too short for your middle-aged thighs because you aren’t sure where you fit on the age spectrum. You’ll be made fun of by your adult children because you drive like a “grandma”. All these things will come to you in a blink of an eye so don’t waste one minute of your pretty and remember the words you have to eat will make you FAT!

Crap, I will be 26 next month and I already see my mom in the mirror. I think Brad is aging me. Instead of making me feel young, like he should, I feel like I am parenting an adolecent teen with a little toddler mixed in.
