Top performance

I’d like to think I don’t have an issue with my age. I’m 38, and I’m ok with that. Or not. I’m a little undecided.


Josh said, “Mommy, I’m going to be four!”

I said, “Yes, you are. You are a big boy.”

Josh said, “Keanon is five.” (Keanon is Josh’s cousin)

I said, “Yes, he is.”

Josh said, “Mommy, how old are you?”

I said, “I’m 38.”

Josh looked impressed and said, “Wow, mommy, you’re a really big girl.”


Today, a young male staff said I looked 27. My first thought was, “I’m going to put ‘top performance’ on your annual review.”

Yes, I am THAT shallow.
