Happy Birthday to Me!

June 25th, 2009

And to MommyBlog!   I am 35 and this blog is now three years old.   Time flies, eh?

I wanted to write something poignant, misty-eyed and reflective, but maybe I’ll save that for a Happy Birthday post to Cooper in four days…

It was a good day… a great one, actually!   I woke up to coffee and presents in bed, then Dudley and I  went for a run.    Later on my parents came over to give me a present (I LOVE it!!) and watch the boys so I could go meet Casey for lunch in the city.   I hired a cleaning lady to come over (a birthday present to myself!   We are having a big party for Coop on Sunday, and Casey’s parents are coming to stay for the week; stressing about cleaning the house was the last thing I needed right now…), and I came home from lunch to a sparkling house, a napping Cooper and a happy Kenny, who was being doted on and indulged by his Grammy and Grampy.   For dinner we had burgers on the grill and sat outside on the deck, gazing at the water and eating a Carvel ice cream cake, then I headed off to my church band practice.   I took the convertible and for once I was glad that our drive to church is a long haul.

What a year this has been.   This time last year I was 39 1/2 weeks pregnant.   This year has gone so fast… now my baby is about to turn one!   It seems like a blur.   I spent some time and re-read some of the posts from this year, and I was overcome with how glad I am that I have a blog.   I was never very good at journals or diaries, but the blogging thing fits.   What a hoot this will be for Kenny and Cooper one day.

Speaking of Kenny and Cooper, I was thinking the other day about “mommy blogging” and the children we write about.   Can’t you just imagine that 20 years down the road there are going to be group therapy sessions for “Recovering Children of Mommy Bloggers?”   Just kidding…

    Check with your parents, someone must have made a mistake with the year of your birth, there is no way you could be 35, you look way younger. And speaking of way, was that you I saw on tv at the ball game last night?
