I am thirty today. My husband skipped his early morning workout to be here when I woke up and to corral any kids who woke up before me. Which was 2! He then fixed me breakfast right down to the chocolate milk (KAYA MULK per Parker). Husband taught Parker to say Happy Birthday, which is TOO cute. I then taught him to say MOMMY'S OLD. I will probably regret that at some point. So. Thirty years ago today I was born. I thought I might reflect on the past 30 years:
Lived in Clarksville, Texas, met my friend MALW in kindergarten, sibling of 2, loved Miss Piggy, sprained my ankle, loved wrestling, lost my grandfather, my dad's birthday cakes, moved to Paris, hated 5th grade, made the basketball and volleyball teams, started liking school, met my friend MNDD, got a boyfriend, was baptized, played softball, went skiing, made junior varsity, got my first car (Chevrolet Celebrity), played on state floor in Austin, graduated high school with some great friends, went to ACU not knowing anyone, worked retail, grandmother died, divorce, spring break campaign TO NYC with a great leader:), pledged a club, graduated, my grandfather died, started teaching in Richardson, got my very own apartment in Dallas, annual Hot Springs trip with mom, found a church home, found Husband, got engaged, married in Paris (TEXAS), went to Disney World, bought first home in Arlington,taught 1 year in Arlington, went to NYC with SIL and MIL, moved to Corinth, my mom got sick, taught in Coppell, found new church home, BIL died of cancer, went with AES to Chicago and went to Oprah Show, got pregnant, had Parker Gregg Pearson, quit teaching, love staying home, got pregnant, went to Colorado for 5 year anniversary, went on cruise to Caribbean, had Emaline Cagle Pearson, TURNED 30!
I know that I left out so much, but had so much fun and sadness remembering all of these memories. God has blessed me in my life, even in ways I wasn't aware of at the time. So, Mommy's old. I can't wait for the next 30 years.
By the way, doorbell just rang...and I got FLOWERS! Thanks Husband, Parker and Emaline.
