Another day, another palindrome birthday

Boo: Mommy, what's wrong?
Me: I'm sad about my birthday.
Boo: Why, Mommy?
Me: It means I'm getting older which means I'm getting more wrinkles.
Boo: (touches my face) It's true, Mommy. You do have wrinkles.
Me: I don't want wrinkles.
Boo: But Mommy, that's what happens when you're a grownup. That's part of being a grownup. It can't be helped. I still love you.
Me: Thanks, Boo
Boo: Happy Birthday, Mommy. Happy Birthday, Wrinkle Mommy!


Yes, it's that time of year again. Time for me to age another year.


I no longer lie and say I am younger than my actual age.

I lie and say I am older.

"WOW! You look amazing for a woman of 51 years!"

Why yes. Yes I do.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to wish me happy birthday here, via email, phone, and Twitter. I appreciate it very much! Last year Matt and I took the day to spend with Avie in the NICU while friends watched Boo and Juna was in an orphanage in China. This year I was with all of my healthy and happy girls. I'm looking forward to my 37th year and hope it brings new opportunities with the career, and continued health and happiness with the family.

Happy Bornday!! Celebrate to the max with Boo and the Stinkies! And that weird guy wearing the tutu. Did he follow you home or something? ;-)

I'm a little confused, why is it a palindrome birthday?

Mutha Mae said...

The same forwards as it is backwards. That gives a hint to the year I was born!

I just say it's the ____ anniversary of my 35th birthday. Let them do the math!

Belated happy birthday!

Happy birthday! Hope you had a grand celebration with the girls and your husband. Would that be Miss Boo's tutu on his head???

Mutha Mae said...

HAH, yeah that was Miss Boo's tutu. That pic was taken on her first birthday. The tutu got so abused by Boo and the cats, it had to be thrown away. Love that pic. Love the fact that my husband doesn't mind looking goofy on the internet.

It was a great birthday! Thanks again, everyone!
