aye happy birthday b9! Being so close to mothers day, you remind me of those kids with birthdays right next to christmas. I hope your kids make you two breakfasts!
Here's the thing: My birthday is the 7th, my firstborn is the 11th, and my secondborn is the 15th. Plus Mother's Day. May is Second Christmas at my house.
I was on the couch with the vile nasty sickness on my birthday. I made the kids clean the house for me and I ordered pizza for dinner.
Mother Day, I got gypped. It was also my daughter's 13th birthday. She spent the entire day whining about how bored she was and how her birthday should be much more exciting and how I should have made her french toast for breakfast and planned to take her somewhere to do something fun because sitting around the house in our PJs was completely not how she envisioned her 13th birthday (interestingly enough, laying around the house in PJs is exactly how I envisioned my mother's day). After lunch, we got dressed, visited my mother and dropped off her Mom's Day gifts... then we came home and I cooked the brand new teenager her chosen birthday dinner and her favorite cake and washed the dishes and cleared the table and started laundry. Hooray for Mother's Day.
