Our World Tuesday: not long since I was 40

My two eldest nephews are 40 this year.

How can that be? I'm sure their NTK (which is Jake's shorthand for Auntie Kay) was 40 herself not long ago, wasn't I?

Well, the impossible has happened. They've caught up to me.



When the family got together this month, there was a surprise cake for the two of them and everyone cheered and sang, except me—not only because I was still trying to do the math, but also because it's a family rule: don't let Kay sing. Much easier on everyone's ears that way.


The arrival of the cake was also a surprise to my intrepid photographer, who had to shoot into the sun in order to capture the moment. Bright sun on the west coast of the British Columbia mainland? That was a surprise, too. And a good time was had by all.

That is funny how your nephews caught up with you in age! Wow … from surprise birthdays to baseball games to historic dog-meet-dog moments, it really does sound like you had a wonderful family time. And having heard you sing I know you could have handled the birthday song perfectly well. :)

Lovely, Kay!!!! Love the baby photo, too! And yes, 40 was here just a blink ago - sigh.

Cute baby pic Kay! My newphew has caught up to me too, he's 43!

Congratulations to you and your nephews on reaching 40! we understand the age thing - the mother of my grandsons (my youngest child) passed 41 a few weeks ago.

Happy Birthday everyone. Apparently 60 is the new 40, so we have a way to go yet ;) xxx

The trouble is I still 'feel' 40 inside ha ha.

I love your sense of humor :)

haha! that is exactly how my family thinks about my singing too!
Happy belated birthday to your nephews. I love how they have nicknamed you NTK.

It's really unnerving for me to think my daughter will be 40 soon. How can that be?
