birthdays and the sabbath don't mix

once i became a mom, i realized i only get two days a year (mothers day/birthday) where i can pretty much do what i want without ty blinking an eye. but this year, they were both on sundays. what's up with that? oh what? you like going to 3 hours of church with your kids on the day after daylight savings? it doesn't bother you that they woke up at 5:30 am with the time change and got cranky by 4pm? wow, hats off to you because it pretty much sucked. but thanks to phonecalls and facebook, i still felt the love. thanks.

i still get to go out with hubby tonight, and pick out my gift. i know, i'm excited too! but overall, birthdays just don't have as much pizzaz as they used too.

cupcakes for school, surprise birthday parties, new clothes. wait, who am i kidding? I never grew up with birthdays like that. but i still like to take a moment on my day of birth and appreciate all that i have.

for now, i'm loving that i finally got my favorite face lotion back thanks to some birthday moolah.

Happy Birthday! Sorry it was on a Sunday and not even a fun Sunday (Sophie was a basket case, too, so you're not alone) but I hope that you still had a good one. Know that you're loved by so many, and treat yourself to something great and fun! Love ya!

So I called your home phone changed your number!!! When did that happen? Check your cell phone. I did call that and got voicemail. Happy Birthday. Oh and by the way I agree. Birthdays on Sunday are definitely not fun.

Happy late birthday! I have to agree that when your a mom birthdays just aren't the same. But it is fun having your kids tell you happy birthday for like a week. (Stockton) =)
