So today I walked in from soccer practice and Jeff and the kids yelled surprise, and then I saw this sign! Wow! I was totally surprised! We have been doing a little something for the kids on their half Birthday's just because theirs get lost in all the Christmas hoopla.
I guess that I have whined and felt sorry for myself enough about how depressing my Birthday usually is that they finally took note. My Birthday ALWAYS falls right at the start of football season when Jeff is away at camp. This means that I am home with the kids all day and night for several days and by myself on my Birthday, and it is kind of depressing...well to put it mildly it really stinks!! I know, I know, it is not a real sob story, and it could be worse, and I should be thankful for another year and all that crap, but it still is no fun. This past Birthday I had to actually buy my own cake...go in the store...pick it out...and pay for it! Talk about depressing. I will never do that again!
ANYWAY enough about that, because they more than made up for it with this surprise. The kids made me cards and pictures, they had flowers, and cupcakes not bought by me...it's the simple things...that's all I want. There was also a coupon for 1 "free" meal for that night only, so no cooking and cleaning! It turned out to be perfect!
Thank you my sweet Jeffers and kidos. It was a wonderful surprise, and I couldn't have asked for more! Love to all!
So be completely honest...do you think I am getting better with age or what????.........................
