I turned 33 Today

Earlier in the week, I was lamenting on how my week hasn't been that great. I was really hoping that my birthday would be a lot better than the rest of the week. Alan and the kids had an awesome surprise waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday - if you follow me on Instagram, then you already know all about it. Just in case you have no idea what I'm talking about, Alan made me red velvet cupcakes with whipped frosting - my favorite, got me a gift card to Old Navy, had the kids decorate mugs for me and got me some peppermint hot chocolate - another one of my favorites. One of my friends was taking me to lunch today - my birthday was looking to be much much better than the rest of the week.

Until I found out that Cecily was sick at daycare yesterday afternoon and that I would be spending my birthday at home with her. Ewan didn't go to daycare today either because he was afraid he would miss my birthday party. While I said that I would love having my birthday off from work...Man, it has been one of those days that makes me glad I'm not a stay at home mom. I have spent my day keeping the peace between two grouchy, sick kiddos who insist on picking on and screaming at each other.

I know that I'm 33 and not a child, but in my world my birthday is a national holiday. I was really hoping the actual day would've wound up being a little better.

  3. I'm sorry the day wasn't better but I sure was jealous of your birthday surprise posted on Instagram. Happy birthday!!
