That’d be ME.
Yep, it’s my birthday. I am 39 today. Eeeeeeek. In one year I will be 40. I am about to embark on a year of self discovery, weight loss, bucket list adventures blah de blah etc etc – isn’t that what you do when you’re facing the big 4-0? I don’t know if I’ve got the energy for all of that. Maybe I’ll just get my boobs done or a buy a fancy sports car. Sounds way more fun.
And to make it extra special I am taking my new 4yo to her first day at kindy. I am expecting tears from her and me and perhaps even Twiggy. I can’t believe that she’s flying the coop. Soon I will only have one baby at home. I am unsure if I should laugh or cry. A bit of both I reckon.
But today I’ll smile because I am so excited for Miss 4 to begin her journey. Her own solo adventure. It’s time for her to meet her own friends and have her own teacher and carry her own school bag. It’s time for her to step out of the shadow of her older sister. She says she is scared, but I know she will thrive, in time.
Today, I’ll hold her hand as she faces her fear. Afterwards we’ll all go and celebrate – her being brave and me getting another year older.
And then I’ll start planning my next birthday – the big one.
Any ideas what I should do – travel or party? Decisions, decisions.
Happy Birthday! Have a fantastic day.
I am rapidly approaching 40 too!! I am pledging to slow down, appreciate the moment, be grateful for all that I have – family and friends, to please myself (a little, tricky when you have kids), love my work (nurse) and stop planning – let someone else sort out the party!! (control freak part of me not do sure)! Happy Birthday and I hope the first day at school goes well x
Happy birthday! Being 40 is great, you have a whole year to look forward to it.
Happy Birthday! Sounds like a very positive year ahead.
Happy birthday Bianca! I reckon travel AND party!
Happy birthday to you. You’re looking fab and not a day over 29! xo

Happy Birthday. I missed the deadline of losing bucket loads by my 40th, but it didn’t matter my friends organised an amazing trip to Dubai for me, with Brunch at the Fairmont for my Birthday. So for me travel. But do what makes you happy – its your birthday.
Happy birthday! I hope you have a fantastic day and little miss 4 enjoyed her first day at kindy. xo
Happy birthday gorgeous girl – enjoy the year of YOU!
Happy Birthday, hope you’ve had a great day so far. xx
Happy birthday lady! I hope that you’ve had a wonderful day. I made a list of stuff to do before I turned 30 (so long ago sniff sniff). The way I did it was to ask all my close friends to give me one challenge, it had to be something that I would get something out of, learn something, overcome a fear, something I’d always talked about but never done. The list I ended up with was amazing.
Lots of love to you xx
Happy birthday, B. Enjoy your 40th year.
(Oh no I di’nt!)
PS – Yay for Miss 4! x
