Every Tuesday and Thursday when Kaden walks into his class at school he announces something.

Here are a few of my favorites:

" I am getting a robot dog and naming him sweaty pits"

" My mommy said if I come into your class today and stay I get an ice cream"

and yesterday........ "My Mommy hurt her back and she cannot pick things up so she makes me do it".

Ok I confess I have been asking my son to pick things up for me. I do not always do this but I really need the help right now and he seemed so willing to help.

The teacher then asked me if I was ok. I told her about the back pain and she said well "your not as young as you used to be". I did not take offense I really like her and could not ask for a better teacher for Kaden. I was shocked I am young I am in my twenties. For some reason I go around with the mind set that I am in my young twenties because there is no way that time as flown by so fast. But I am facing the reality that in about a month I will be really close to turning 30. In just a couple of years I will be 30.

I guess I am not as young as I used to be and pains are not always something you can just sleep or walk off. Sometimes you have to bring out the anti inflammatories and icy hot.

I am 32 and carrying around a 25 pound infant. Instead of my back hurting, its my knees. I guess from bending down and picking him up. Anyway, I feel your pain. Don't be to hard on yourself- you are still young and beautiful!! Maybe its not age at all, maybe you just twusted the wrong way lifting and the pain will go away on its own.

I'm about to turn 31...and sometimes I momentarily lose my mind and try to jump out of a swing, or climb a fence, or do some other random thing I could have done when I was in my young 20's. :-) A 31 year old body doesn't hit the ground quite as lightly as a 20 year old one!
