Yesterday I watched out the window as my Jeep Liberty drove away with its new 19 year old owner behind the wheel. Some of you may be laughing at me, others may be rolling your eyes but I have to admit I was really sad as I watched the last thread holding me to my youth drive away. It is true that I am leaving my twenties behind me this year and yes I understand I usually am driving a mini van and that I do have 4 kids but when I was leaving the house without the kids and would jump in my jeep and be care free and fancy free I would feel young and rejuvenated. I would even go as far to say that I felt "cool." Cheesy I know! Oh well life marches on and speaking of which Allie is crying and probably needs a diaper change. So farewell to my youth I will just have to make this whole middle age Mom thing look AWESOME!!
