We recently celebrated my Mother’s birthday (I won’t say how old because it’s not lady-like to mention a woman’s age and also because she’d probably kick my a**) 🤪
Although it’s quite easy to remember my parents birthday, growing up my mother made a catchy tune “November-Seventeenth” that we all remember growing up and still reminisce about.
It was nice to be able to spend time with her for her birthday and hope this just one of many we will get to spend together. I’m not sure if you will read this but I love you ❤️
Today is my 32nd birthday and I am looking forward to family dinner, movie night on the couch with some popcorn and a few other things planned weather permitting!
As a child you wake up excited to see if you’ve grown an inch since your last birthday, watch your parent(s) set up birthday party decorations and help assist with making candy bags while eating a few pieces along the way, aggressively ripping open gifts, having your family, neighborhood and school friends over and let’s not forget those birthday cards from grandma and grandpa that you never quite read but you were excited to see their was $25 bucks in it and you would feel like a millionaire walking into Toys R Us 😎
In other words, kid birthdays were the sh*t But now as you get older you wake up checking if you’ve got some gray hairs yet (I hope mine come in nicely) 😂, if you’re due for an annual exam, walk to the skincare aisle at Sephora expecting to spend a million bucks, and wear a crown on your tooth instead of one on your head that reads “happy birthday”.
I hope you found humor in todays blog post as I did 😂 but in all seriousness I am grateful with how life has turned out thus far and happy I get to spend another birthday with my family by my side because another year older means it’s another chance to make more memories ❤️
So here’s to 32! 🍾🎂
