Today is my birthday. 36 years old. I feel I should have something profound, or important or noteworthy to say. But I don’t. I’m like “Yeah, whatever.” I bought myself a present a couple of weeks ago, so the excitement of that has worn off. I’m going out to dinner with my family tonight, and having friends over on Saturday for a BBQ. That will be nice.
To be honest, I wrote a far more depressing post (in hindsight) about my birthday. I’m not sad about my age or anything like that, I was just a little “ho-hum” about it. I genuinely have trouble remembering how old I am most of the time – must be because I’m immature, right? 😉
But I woke up this morning to excited cuddles from my kids and I realised my birthday isn’t about me. It is about “us”. I may not be a big party person or have a huge desire to shout from the roof that it’s my birthday – but my kids were really excited. And that made me happy. Matilda was disappointed that I got out of bed because she wanted to give me breakfast in bed. Delilah was as excited by giving me presents as she was opening her own on Christmas morning. And Gilbert demanded tickles, which means he was happy to be spending time with me, too.
So far it’s been a pretty good birthday and it isn’t even 8am.
Happy birthday! Hope it’s a great day! For the record, I would often forget my age as well…until now that is…there’s a big birthday looming next year and I’m all too aware of it lol
Happy Birthday my love. I’m glad it’s started off well but I am a bit miffed to see no mention of me cooking breakfast for you… 😉
Seriously, I hope you enjoy the rest of your special day!
I was editing my original post as you were cooking. I had no idea how breakfast would turn out. I thought it safer not to mention it at all… 😛
Awesome. Enjoy the rest of your day making the kids happy 🙂
A little birdie did tell me it was your birthday, what a spring chicken (or should it be rooster in this case) Happy Birthday. I’m a year shy of you but my hubby hit the big 4 0 – when you get there you can start writing a depressing post! I hope you had a fantastic day, were smothered in kisses! Emily
