Happy Wednesday everyone! I am feeling a bit of cabin fever as it has been so rainy and cold that Sam and I have not stepped outside in the last two days! Usually we are out 1-2 times a day to get a little fresh air! Today we are getting out and Momma’s getting a break!
I’ve recently turned 27 and to be honest, that number gives me goose bumps. That age is scary close to being in the 30’s! In many ways, I feel like an adult! More so this year then any time else! Having my own child certainly slaps you into reality over and over again.
There are some childish things that I still kind of do. Random dance party? You bet that I am starting it and breaking it down on the random dance floor.
Crying over ridiculous things? I blame the hormones but I am also a true believer in a REALLY good cry is amazing medicine.
Cozy up at my parents? Absolutely! When I am at their home, I feel like the adult version of their child. They have a way of wanting to do stuff for me still out of habit of being my parents. Truthfully, I love it. I find myself doing similar things for Sam and for now, it’s nice to still be the “child” to someone else.
All those things are just small examples of how I still feel a bit of adolescence but it’s not the worse. The thing right now in my life that has be reverted back to my teenage ways is none other then my current obsession with….
Recently I noticed that my beloved Netflix had the whole series of Gossip Girl. I have gone through a couple of series of shows since Sam was born as I use my phone to pass the time when he is nursing. After the first episode, I was hooked! I never watched the show when it was on T.V (and actually a teenager) but now I am enthralled. It has me captured by the complicated love triangles, handsome men, girl drama and mega city backdrop!
Sometimes I feel a little embarrassed about my love for Gossip Girl. Not only is the show’s content not 100% current (flip phones versus smart phones makes this very evident!) but the plots are even slightly unbelievable! It doesn’t matter though! Only a couple weeks in, about 2 shows a day and I am hooked! I find myself throughout the day thinking about what will happen next and counting down the time till I can press play again!
Is it just a fascinating show good for all ages or a new mom hanging onto a last thread of youth? Please someone tell me I am not alone!
