My 1st 29th Birthday

We celebrated my fiance’s 33rd birthday this past weekend. Before cutting the cake my future mother-in-law asks me, “How old will you be in May, Mar?”

“I’ll be 29.” I respond.

She stares at me for a moment. “Really, 29? Or…” I stare back, genuinely confused for a moment. She finally asks, “Is this your first 29th birthday?”

“Ha! Yes, this is my first 29th birthday” I grin, “but probably not my last.”

  1. This conversation is one my girlfriends and I often have. We’re all turning 29 this year (mine is in May, too!) and we plan to celebrate with a big weekend for our “first 29th birthday” since, for many of us who are getting married, we can also say “last kid-free birthday!”
