I celebrate my 40th birthday this weekend. There, I said it. I feel I’m at a good place in my life at 40. I have an adorable, healthy little boy; a handsome husband, hard-working husband; a wonderful, supportive family; and I love my work.

I know I am very blessed and looking forward to what the next few years will bring. They are shaping up to get interesting!

I ate a fried egg for my birthday dinner. My sister-in-law took Landon for a sleepover so that Don and I could go to a fancy dinner at the Flying Pig in Mount Kisco, and I just had to try the fried egg. It was delish!

I got loopy after half a glass of Riesling wine.

I wish I was ten years younger, because then I’d definitely have another child. There, I said it.

L had hours of fun at the pool last week. He has no fear — which of course makes my heart stop periodically. He’s my little “Wasserratte” — my little water rat.

Is that an expression you have here in America?

“Hopping” over from blogfrog (groan). Love your blog. Happy NOT 40th. I will NOT be turning 35 next year and it does NOT freak me out all all.

Happy belated 40th Dagmar! A fried egg sounds yummy right about now. :) I’m so glad that you had a wonderfully tipsy birthday.
