Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016
It’s 2016 people!
I’m still in a state of denial because this is the year I turn thirty. How did that happen? Just the other day I was 21!
Boyfriend asked me the other day how I imagined my life would be when I grew up. He could not believe it when I told him that the one thing I never imagined was me living with a man some day. I never dreamt of the perfect wedding like other girls did. I still don’t know what color or flowers I would choose if I were to have a formal wedding. I grew up a fiercely independent girl and always knew that I would never make the perfect wife. I am a feminist in every sense and reasoned that I would be a lot happier on my own. I however thought that I would have 2 kids by the time I hit thirty. I did not know how that would happen, but I knew it would be wise to get them early before my eggs became scrambled.
We make plans and God laughs. Look how things turned out.
My baby girl is turning three in 2 weeks and I still have 10 months to work on the second kid :-). At 3 years old, Melina should be joining school this January. At least that is what most people tell us. We however think that it is still too early and she should play a little longer before she starts her formal education. We should be ready to let her go by May. Hopefully. Why is she growing up so fast? I keep telling myself that instructive learning is not important at this point as exploration and LEGO camp kind of educational activities are. Studies have already confirmed that. What I need to come to terms with is that she is now grown; it is time to leave the nest.
I have a feeling that 2016 will be a good year full of health, happiness and prosperity.
Happy New Year
Until we see each other again,
