YAY! The big SIX--OH. I'm so sad that we can't be together today to celebrate. But if I could be there, we'd be sure to go to Goodwill together. While there we'd pick up every piece of whatchamacallit and tell each other, "Hmmm...isn't this neat?" and "I wonder why someone would throw this out." We'd try on outfits (that we'd never buy in a department store) because, hey, it's only $1. And I'm sure I'd have to remind you to never say, "Moo Moo" again. After we shopped for a hour or so we'd convince each other that we didn't really need anything after all. We'd head on over to Mr. Gattis where we've always loved the salad bar and the apple pizza because, well hmmm...because they cancel each other out, right?
I'm sure, at some point, we'd go get our hair and nails done. And while we're at it, let's go get that massage that you know we both want! Then we'd call Poppy and Daddy to see how they've fared with all the babies. Upon hearing that they'd like us to come home right away, we'd decide to just go see a movie. After all, it IS your birthday.
And good news is...we'd get to do it all over again next week for MY birthday. YAY!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!! I love you longer and longer!
If I still have any readers after being mostly away the last two weeks, then be sure to head on over to mom's new blog at http://boomerbabybliss-bfs.blogspot.com/. Welcome her to the blogosphere, leave her a "happy birthday" message and be sure to check back often (she's about to set up a subscription option for those wanting to keep up).
I’m a joyful woman who wears many hats, including: wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend, teacher, librarian, and follower of Christ. I’m also an ex-public school teacher turned SAHM turned unschooling mom. Our little midwestern family is tremendously grateful for the liberties we have to home school, homebirth, breastfeed, co-sleep, baby wear, non-circ, delay or not vaccinate, and utilize non-punitive, grace-based discipline. We work hard to keep up with the ins and outs of healthy living. It was painful, but we took the red pill and still continue to find new truths daily. I teach just a few short-courses for the local college each year, read and write book reviews and blog on the side. And if you must know, I have an undergrad in music (BA), a masters in library science (MLS), and a masters in educational technology (MEd).
