Happy birthday to .. me
28 years ago today, I was born. Hurrah. I love the story of my birth. Let me bore you with it... My mom was on her way from Texas to Alaska. She was either on a greyhound bus or an airplane, depending on who you speak to. Her waters broke and the bus/plane had to make an emergency stop in Seattle where I was born. My due date, however, was mid to late September. There was little me, born just slightly over 4lbs and of course everyone fell in love...
How could they not? Despite not always having the greatest birthday, it being during the summer holidays when everyone is away, I grew up healthy and mostly happy, but kind of dreading those alone-birthdays. Now fast-forward to today, the year I turn 28...
And I'm sure to have the best birthday ever. Not because I have the most presents or because of how many people remember my birthday. But because I have the two most gorgeous boys in the world, who give me lots of hugs and who only wipe their faces after I give them kisses after I've turned away and they think that I'm not looking. Poor N's struggled to find the perfect birthday gift for me this year, but it doesn't really matter. Because with N and the boys, I really have everything I need.
...but I still hope there will be cake.
So, help me to celebrate my birthday this year. Tell me your best birthdays, best gift, best thing you've done. Best cake. Worst birthday, the forgotten birthdays, the crappiest gift. Most embarassing birthday. Spill. I want to hear it all!
