Today is my 40th birthday.
Is 40 the new 30, as I am told, or is 40 the old 40?
My first child is due in 53 days – how could it be that just yesterday I turned 20 and today I am 40?
Will I live to see my son turn 30?
If 40 is the new 30 and 30 is the new 20, maybe he will be 30 in twenty years and I will only be 50?
That way, it will be like I had a son when I was 20.
