A Birthday Slice

Well, today is the day!  It is the day each year when I get a little older.  It's the day I think to myself, hmmm, I don't feel that old!  Yep, it's my birthday!

My morning started at 7 a.m. on the dot, as usual.  My 51-week-old alarm clock/daughter (I have a hard time believing she's going to be ONE on Monday!) woke up right on time.  We started the day with a bottle and a snuggle...always a peaceful way to ease into wakefullness!

My co-workers (yes, we did curriculum work today) provided me with a yummy baked potato and salad lunch, followed by equally yummy brownies and ice cream!  It made working today much easier.

After work, my hubby took me out for dinner and we enjoyed a meal together where we didn't have to get up to refill anyone's glass, didn't have to tell anyone to sit up in his/her chair and we didn't have to negotiate how many more bites anyone had to have of dinner.  That's right, it was a dinner for grown-ups only!

I guess I don't mind getting older when it means I get to have a nice day like today!

  1. Robin, it's my son's birthday too-love the Leo's! Happiest of birthdays to you. I'm glad you had such a special day.

  2. I am glad to hear the day started and ended on peaceful notes. Also glad to hear that the the curriculum work felt "maybe" more like a break from the norm, at least for a few more weeks! Happy Birthday to you...(I'm singing the whole song right now for you).
