This past Sunday, I turned 32. A lot of people fear getting older, particularly in this stage of life, but I’m embracing it. My 20s taught me to enjoy each age and stage as it comes, and to accept the differences that lie ahead as things change with the passage of time.
On paper, 32 sounds kind of old, but in spirit I still feel really young. I think that I have a toddler boy to thank for that. I spend my days at the zoo, on playgrounds, having tickle fights, and building pillow forts.
There is so much to look forward to, from the perspective of both and individual and as a mother. And while I still hold tight to my sense of self (that I have worked so hard to regain this year!), there is no denying that the little people in our worlds just simply make life better.
Here are 32 ways my toddler is helping me rock out my 32nd year.
