The difference from turning 21 to 30...
21: Went out clubbing at 10p.m. to celebrate turning 21
30: Wanted to go to bed at 9 cuz kids were sleeping
21: Slept in and did whatever I wanted on my birthday
30: Was up at 7:15 cuz Carter wanted a Waffle
21: I'm sure I was hanging with my mom getting ready to go to Vegas for my birthday
30: Got a sitter so I could do lunch with some amazing girlfriends
21: Had wonderful dinner/date with boyfriend (weekend before)
30: Had wonderful dinner/date with husband(weekend before, and was with that same guy 9 years before)
21: Had dirty cloths to pick up off floor
30: Had whole house to pick up and take care of 3 kids.
21: Night of Birthday hung out with lots of friends while getting ready to go dancing
30: Going to Del Taco for Taco Tuesday so kids can play
What a difference a few years make. Even though turning 21 was great I was still just a baby. I can now say I've done a few things had a few kids and I'm glad I'm not out every night till 3 a.m. I'm so glad to have such great friends and family. And I'm so glad that 30 is now the new 20....
