30 GOING ON 13


I swear, the older I get, the less I look my age.

The most vivid birthday I remember from my past was turning 13. I was so excited, because I was going to be a Teenager, by golly. I had made it to another stage of my life.

Today I also feel like I'm hitting a new stage. I'm a Grown Up today.

Somebody needs to tell my hair...

Have you seen the birthday girl, the birthday girl, the birthday girl; have you seen the birthday girl who lives on ????? Drive? Yes, I've seen the birthday girl, the birthday girl...

Thirty years ago today I remember lying in a Tulsa hospital, waiting for the doctor to wash his hands so I could push! It was taking him forever, and I was ready to fly out of that bed and strangle him! But then you were born--a beautiful, teeny, tiny 6 lb. baby girl--and it was wonderful. I'm now your age times two, but I remember every detail as if it were yesterday.
Lots of hugs and kisses on your birthday.
Love you,

I knew your birthday was coming up but couldn't remember the exact date. My mom reminded me this past weekend :). Thanks for posting the picture. That's just the Sarah I remember! And just remember, 30 isn't always grown up, "grown up" is a state of mind.

I'll be turning 30 in March, so it's good to know I can continue on my merry road of childish fun, 'cause someone done blazed it ahead of me! :D

Happy &c - A friend cheered me up on my 30th with this observation: "in 40 months you'll be 33 and a third" (Well, made more sense in the days of LPs)

Happy Birthday S!

Now..what did Charlie do for your big day?

A belated happy birthday... Oh, just so you know, pre-30, I was always the early girl. Post 40 - well, if I am within a reasonable (defined by me, of course) timeframe, the late is the new on time! So perhaps this doesn't count as late - it's your birthday weekend!!!

Happy birthday! Shooting guns sounds like a great way to spend it!

Posted by: Anwyn at October 12, 2007 04:49 PM

Belated Happy Birthday greetings! Hope you had fun at the shooting range.

Well, better late than never - happy birthday!

Tomorrow, I'm going on 40, not 30, so I'm not wild about that...

BTW, don't be depressed about it either. You are gorgeous.
