when you get to be my age, you kinda stop counting the birthdays. you actually count backwards and start repeating birthdays. but acknowledgement and celebration are important to the minis. i woke up to a handmade card from mini-she. she wants to surprise me all the while asking, "where's the construction paper? where's the tape? what's your favorite kind of cake?
what do you think you'll want to eat for dinner?"
mini-he sees her card and says, "mama, can i draw you
a flower for your birthday? or a heart?" so sweet.
just for these moments, i want to keep having birthdays.
my day continued with fresh baked cookies from a work neighbor and friend, S. they were warm and chewy, just how i like them. then i had a wonderful lunch with good friends, good food, and good conversation at a restaurant i've been wanting to try. thanks, L & S! and when i got back to the office, i was greeted with the prettiest lillies from my friend, D.
if you guys are reading, thanks for the bestest birthday!
bre asked me if i was a taurus. may 21st actually falls on the cusp...most times i'm considered a gemini. once in a while i fall under taurus. guess that makes me a two-faced bull?
