    I miss Sarah b. I wonder if she is still fantasizing about her boss. I wonder if he left his wife yet. I wonder how everything is going at Golden Corral. Sarah B? Check in with us and let us know #whathashappened.

    I think that might be true about gingers. When I think of redheads I know who lived into their 80s and 90s, they did seem to age a little more slowly than average. Until his mid-80s or so, my grandfather, a redhead who died at 90, always looked at least 10 years younger (and his hair was red almost until the very end).

    Yeah, seriously on the kids thing. Before I had Jackson (when I was 35), people regularly told me I looked at least 5 years younger (and I believed them because I thought the same thing). After 3+ years of parenting (including many, many sleepless nights, long days, very little “me time,” etc., etc.), I think I pretty much look my age now. There’s a photo on our wall of the three of us when Jackson was 4 days old and I swear I look like I’m about 27 or 28. I have aged A LOT since then. All my friends my age who don’t have children look younger than the ones who do. Oh, but it’s worth it, yada, yada, yada… 😉

    That said, I do occasionally still get carded. When it’s very dark and very late and the bartender is basically carding everyone — but I’ll take it!

    Way to tie it all together in a nice bow, Addie!

    We need to get this to 80 pages. We just do.
    Addie, I can’t believe you went to work in your PJs. Even if it was at 5 am, before anyone else was there. It’s so… daring! What would you have done if someone had been in the office? What if someone else came in early and saw you?
    You must be exhausted. You should eat a #cinnamonroll and hit the sack nice and early tonight.

    My mom is the oldest of four kids, all born within five years. There was so much sibling rivalry and dealing with stressed-out parents, that my mother decided she’s space her kids much further apart. as a result, my sister and I are nearly 7 years apart (no kids in between, and no miscarriages or fertility issues, that I know of). That age difference was like a freakin’ gulf growing up – allison and I were always at such incredibly different stages, and then she was only 11 when I left home for college. It almost felt like each of us was an only child in some ways. I wished I’d had a sibling closer in age, but not so close that there would be all the rivalry that apparently existed among my mother and her siblings as kids, which is why I’m spacing my kids like we’re doing (Jackson will be 3 years, nine months when his sister is born in July). Obviously, I don’t know yet what their sibling dynamic will be like but I think it’s so sweet how very, very excited Jackson is and how he is already saying how much he loves his baby sister, and I don’t think he would have been like that a year ago (because he just wouldn’t have understood so well what was happening and probably wouldn’t feel as ready as he does now for a new family member).

    Sarah, have you been diagnosed with bipolar disorder? That’s not an attack, but a genuine question. I’m just curious because your behavior reminds me of behavior of bipolar people I know when they aren’t on their meds.

    Sarah, in the top right corner of the forum thread is a link that says “unsubscribe.” If you click that, you should stop getting email notifications.

    I had such a terrible morning (-15 windchill outside, frozen pipes, no hot water, totally sleepless night, sudden resurgence of morning sickness), but this thread really kept me entertained until things turned around. the bad news is I was so engrossed, I didn’t write a column for tomorrow morning. Will try to get up early tomorrow to get it done in time, but if I don’t, you know who to blame. #dickchoker #&&
