Today is my husband’s 35th birthday (how in the world did we get this old?!). If you’ve been reading up and putting the pieces together–yes, my son’s b-day was yesterday. My mom’s birthday was always the day after mine. I never realized how much it would suck to have your birthday right on top of your child’s until I found myself at the hospital pushing out a baby on June 2. The next day, it was my husband’s birthday and I was all bed-ridden, postpartum gross, and like, “So, do you want me to sing to you or something?”. Fortunately birthdays aren’t a big deal to my husband, b/c this year, with the way the days/dates fell, we will actually be rocking out a Mickey Mouse party for our son on my husband’s big day. For the record, I will NOT be so gracious if I find myself anchoring a child’s b-day party on my 35th…thanks for being so very, very cool, my wonderful husband and happy 35th 😉
