My Jaymes has grown up
Oh gosh, when I uploaded the photos to my computer this morning, I was mildly shocked to see how my son has grown. 15 years old! It was just like only yesterday when I was feeding him his porridge and changing his diapers.
It seems the years passed so fast after I turned 30. Where did all those years go to? Very soon, he would be going for his National Service, and then further studies, and then get married. Gosh! I would be a mother-in-law and then a grandmother. Jeezzz.........
How do you stop time from moving forward? My hair is turning white and my precious assets are beginning to sag. I could dye my hair and go for plastic surgery, but underneath all this artificial masking is still the over-40 woman.
Many years ago, a middle-aged female colleague was lamenting to me about her age-spots and wrinkles and I was rolling my eyes all the time. I was young then, so what she said didn't register with me. Now that I'm reaching the dreaded years, I'm beginning to worry.
Heck, I'm still a woman who gets admiring glances when I'm in public places, and if you say you don't care, probably nobody's looking at you. muahahahaha...........
sigh, I'm so shallow.
