HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! I am officially thirty, which is a good thing because I have felt older than I really am for a very long time! I started my family young, and had all my kids pretty close together. Whenever I would shop for maternity clothes, I always heard, "is this your first?" And I never did like saying, "No, this is my third (or fourth, or fifth)" "You don't look old enough to have three (or four, or five) kids." Ya, I heard that A LOT! But here I am in my thirties and feeling good about it.
My phone rang and beeped with texts all morning long. I have so many great friends that remembered me today and I just want to tell them all THANKS! I really do have the best family and friends anyone could ask for.
I even started my morning off with breakfast in bed, compliments of Hailey, Sydni and Justin. I love my family and they must love me. Here are some reasons being a wife and mom of 5 are not so bad.......
Hailey loves me enough to always remember my birthday or mothers day and wake me up with breakfast in bed. She also gives great foot rubs, they do cost a dollar, but they're worth every penny.
Sydni loves me enough to tickle my arm for hours and always tell me she loves me before bed and when she leaves for school! She always tells me I'm pretty.
Jonah loves me enough to hug me and kiss me any time I want even though he thinks he is way too cool!!
Danny loves me enough to let me hold him and rock him, even though he is not a baby, Max is a baby. Which he reminds me of often!
Max loves me enough to take a binky so I can have my body to myself every once in a while.
Justin loves me enough to pat me on the bum every time he walks past me. In all honesty, it drives me a little crazy, but when he doesn't do it, I wonder if he's mad at me.
I really do have a great family.
