The night before my birthday every year my mom calls me and says, “36 years ago today I was jumping off the sidewalk trying to make you come out.” Then like clockwork, around 10am-ish on my birthday my mom will call me and say, “36 years ago today I looked at you and loved you.”
I overheard my sons talking about giving me breakfast in bed…cereal with chocolate chips in it (my staple.) I also heard my 6 year old say, “Yeah, mom’s an old lady.” Oh my.
Birthdays are a big deal to me. I love presents. Which is why I always hold giveaways the week of my birthday. I enjoy the excitement of everyone trying to win, most especially the “OMG YAY!” when I email each person to let them know they’ve won. So be sure to check out and enter to win the 5 giveaways I’m holding. You only have until August 23rd, and they are pretty awesome if I do say so myself.
