Happy Birthday to me.

Today is my birthday, yay!

I am an "older" mom here, at 35.

I thought I would post a few things here about the things I have learned so far in my life's journey and my mom journey and here on CM:

1. Kids only cost MORE as they get older. Diaper costs become Etne costs. So, a mom with an 18 month old isn't really going to convince me that "it doesn't cost THAT much to raise a kid."

2. If you are REALLY comfortable about something (how many kids you have, that you are PROUD of PA) then don't make a drama post about it. It will only make you feel worse.

3. You will never convince a stubborn person to change their obtuse thinking.

4. Know when NOT to judge someone. There is a definite tone in a person's post that should tell you when to hold your tongue and just offer support, even if you disagree.

5. Being a mom is HARD, but our time right now, this time raising our kids, is the BEST time of our lives. We should enjoy.

I just wanted a "happy" post. I truly feel blessed to be a mother, and blessed to have reached another birthday to enjoy my family.
