Happy unbirthday to me

This has been the least birthday-ish birthday ever. My boys are still sick so we spent the day at home.

J was super nice and has been running point on all things baby today giving me a break and I can't tell you how nice it is. Having a baby is the first thing I've done that doesn't have a weekend or an off-season. It's a full time job plus nights and weekends. It's go-go-go all the time. No matter how you're feeling or what you want to do, you have to take care of the baby. It's unrelenting but very rewarding. And a day like today, a mini break provided by my lovely J, is just what I needed.

I spent my free time vacuuming, organizing our pictures and taking a long bath. I haven't changed a diaper or been puked on today. I didn't get presents or cake or balloons, but I feel good. And I still get all those birthday things, just some other day.

Happy birthday to me.


  1. Hopefully you can celebrate another day, BUT a break is most definately the best present out there!! Hope you enjoyed getting things done and relaxing a bit

  2. Looking forward to K's Birthday Redux
