QOTD: New Mama

With turning 40 comes a new age bracket.  New age category means new health tests, screens, and appointments.  This week I went to the first of such appointments.  An hour and a half later I was exhausted and overwhelmed.  Walking in the door that night, little R, almost 4, said, “Mama are you old?”  Recently celebrating the big 4-0 together, he must have sensed the “change” from a regular birthday to a big one.  I replied, “I’m just feeling a little old today buddy.”  His reply, while priceless, was a little alarming, “so are we getting a new mama?”  No he did not mean that this mama was being transformed into a skinnier, more energetic, back to my youth mama.  Yes, he wanted to know about a brand, new mama.  Not exactly something one wants to hear after a long day at school and the doctor’s office.

Note to self, work on transforming into a younger version of this Mama.
