The View From My Window

The world as seen from my window and through my eyes

Two score and five years ago today… (Part 1) February 4, 2007

My first baby was born. It sounds so small to say someone is 25 years old today. It’s so much more impressive to say you’ve been on the planet for a quarter of a century, or two score and five years. It’s equally impressive to be able to say “Today my insurance rates reflect that I am truly an adult!”

Regardless of how you say it, congratulations, son, on reaching this important milestone in your life. Having you was worth the 3 1/2 days of labor it took to get you here! Although we no longer get to spend time together on your special day (because you truly are an adult with a life of your own) just know that every February 4th I wake up and think about my first child and am thankful for your presence in my life.

My next blog entry will deal with the downside of saying you have a child that is a quarter of a century old. I’ll try to phrase it more positively from my perspective next time I write! Now, help me think of ways to make 25 sound like a very SMALL number so I don’t feel so ancient!
