I just took another trip around the sun again. I’m 24! What?
This is my first birthday as a full-fledged mom. Last year, I was just plain ol pregnant. This time, I have a new appreciation for what it means to celebrate a birthday. I wished my mother a happy “birth day” because now I know the kind of work she had to do to get me here! Man oh man.
To celebrate my birthday, I visited Freebies4Mom to check out the birthday freebies. I used a coupon for a free entree from Moe’s (that restaurant and Panera’s are my favorite two restaurants for dining out with my baby right now!). I might also see about getting some free ice cream or other goodies.
Last year, I wrote a post of 23 things I learned that year. Check it out if ya wanna.
Since turning 23, I’ve learned the immense joy that it is to be a mother. My life has changed so profoundly that I can’t even explain it, so I’ll just leave it at that.
Financially speaking, I’ve learned that it takes more money than a down payment to buy a house — closing costs, prepaids and plenty of other miscellaneous expenses. It takes more money than I have right now and it’ll be worth the wait to buy something when we’ve got more money.
If it isn’t too much trouble, won’t you delurk and leave a comment? If you’ve never commented here before, please introduce yourself, tell me about what you’re doing lately, what you’d like to read about here, or share a lolcat or a fail or something funny with me.
