>youth is wasted on the wrong people

>

This picture was taken roughly six months after Bill and I were married. We’re like Mork and we get younger as we age (har har).
I am in a situation that has thrown me in with the ‘young mom’ generation by having little ones in my old[er] age. I hadn’t planned it this way. In my vainess I was planning on being the youngest mom at high school graduations, at the MTC seeing my son off on a mission, and so on. But life bit me in the tush and reversed things a bit, now I’m the oldest mom at play dates (and probably the most opinionated and outspoken – which is probably why I’m not asked my opinions directly much), I feel more like a grandmother at the children’s museum than a mom. I don’t have the teenage parent lifestyle I dreamed of having, my babies can’t sit through any athletic event, or concert, and we can hike as far as Danni’s legs will go (about 2 miles). There are advantages, live in babysitters, extra hands to carry, feed and rock the little ones, the mother/child cooking sessions paid off and they can whip up a good meal and clean the kitchen decently. So life is not bad, it’s just not exactly what I expected.
I think I’m going to embrace the phase I’m in. Let my hair grow into it’s natural color (grey) and not stress too much about my weight. I have started working out in earnest because I do want to be healthy, and in these two weeks I’ve put on 4 pounds (if anyone comments about muscle weighing more than fat I’ll scream).

    >Devri, you crack me up! This was pre-computer (1989). We did the old fashioned make up and put baby powder in our hair to grey it. Bill actually applied the make up, he is an artist! That was taken in rexburg Idaho in our little student apartment.
