I’ve gotten lots of special attention lately…It’s my birthday.
I woke up to find a card at the coffee pot, surprised with a pie and a big 4 & a big 2 candle on top. My kids gave me little birdhouses (hand-painted & decorated); of course they will never see the light of day because they are now proudly on display. Books. Dinner with girlfriends ~all made possible by the super can do no wrong (for the moment anyway) special The One.
And the birthday celebration continues…just the night before my Mother In-law & Sister In-law treated me
to a super fabulous birthday dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, birthday cake, lots of good conversation & laughter!
I’ve loved every minute of it!
It is no secret to my family that I absolutely love birthdays…especially when we celebrate them at home surrounded by family and friends, homemade food, laughter and silliness.
So, needless to say, when I walked into my very first ever surprise birthday party ~I cried…
I’m getting teary eyed just thinking about it now!
What made it even more special was that my Little One (3 yo) planned the entire event…from menu to attendees.
One evening sitting in my home office (kitchen table) busy working, on the laptop, when The One comes to me and says that were invited to a party…
Me: “Oh really who’s party?”
The One: “I can’t tell
you. Would you like to come with me?”
Me: “Um, yeah I guess.”
I follow him into the dining room…
Yep, surprised more than surprised; I melted into a big ball of mush right there on the dinning room floor…very little has the power to turn me into mush and make me teary eyed.
…just thinking about it now brings tears to my eyes.
My Sweet baby girl found my leftover stash of birthday supplies (she asked me if she could play with them and get a cup of yogurt from the refrigerator… I said yes having no clue of her intent), proceeds to set the table and then goes to invite her Daddy and sister before sending her Daddy to come and get me…
Her Daddy’s Place setting included a eating utensil measuring spoon and remote-controlled car.
I will no doubt remember this birthday…forever!
To My Sweet Baby Girls ~

Our Micro – Preemie born @ 23 weeks 1 pound 7 oz
…‘they’ gave her a 10% chance of survival!
Look at her now:
I can’t explain it…
During the first two weeks of the new year someone in my house has been sick…every. single. day! Coughing with fever, chills and body aches.
I tried with all my might to avoid getting sick!
Unfortunately, my head did not effectively communicate with my body and I ended up sick! This caused a negative chain reaction…resulting in a 10 load pile up:
If you are wondering why I have a shovel in the laundry room…We had to shovel snow and ice from the front stoop and driveway.
not a normal southern occurrence:
I digress. I’m sick. My kids are recovering from being sick. We’ve been contained to the point of becoming feral.
My laundry is piling up…I take my sick self into the laundry room and begin sorting; while my kids are comfy cozy, snuggled up with their pillows and blankets in the other room watching cartoons….
…at-least that’s what I think!!!
(someone found my stash!)
and eventually find the loop thief…
she impresses me daily and makes me laugh! bahhahaha
thank you for visiting MomMeTime…
in between life’s interruptions!
I consider this to be monumental! I mean considering the frequency in which I misplaced, lost or just simply forgot something. I am not sure WTF happened to me in 2010. I wonder if I’ve always been like this and I’m just now becoming aware or if it’s just a 40’s thing?
I am seriously beginning to question my long term (oh hell even my short term) memory; ‘The One’ calls me a squirrel with Alzheimer’s. I swear…I think I’m putting it somewhere safe! This week alone, I misplaced more things than I care to elaborate on. I missed entirely too many commitments and/or appointments. So, I decide it is time to find a solution; I write a list of to do’s. I place the list on the refrigerator…it’s my save me from myself handy dandy reminder list! I’ll be damned if I don’t look at it wrong and end up confusing times (Oops missed that appointment ~ I did this not once but twice) grrrr. Okay, that did not work! I move onto finding another solution; I input reminder notes into my telephone…ah, I have finally found my solution. Until. Yep, I forget to charge it. Let me tell you something, if you forget to charge your phone, it will not work…oops!
As I’m deciding what my 2011 New Year resolution will be (because one is all I really need ~ ha ha); it occurs to me that I should forego the resolution and just start taking ginkgo biloba ~ I hear that helps with memory! Why must the word RESPONSIBILITY continually keep entering my mind? Hmm. Maybe, I will look at my ability to respond to life stuff as I journey through 2011 and try to do things differently. Just a thought. Life…it’s a work in progress!
Happy New Year! I wish you happiness and peace…
Family Blessings Mother of all tantrums…a fathers promise good grief
I’ve already come up with a 2nd resolution…try to figure spacing and how to center better on my blog.
