Sunday Snapshot - Me

Well, today is my birthday!  Yep, 47 years ago today I was born!  Wow, did I just say that??  Yikes!


Anyway, as an early birthday present, my wonderful Mom took the 3 little ones last night and we were down to only 2 kids - the older 2 - the easy 2 - you know the 2 that you can tell to go away and entertain yourselves while Mom and Dad actually get to sit down and have a conversation - uninterrupted and all!!!



Of course it would have worked a heck of a lot better if Dad didn't constantly procrastinate and have to go out after 7 (yes 7!) soccer games to buy Mom a birthday present!!!  Ha!

Oh well, it was all good.  I got some quiet time (after watching the Hulk on TV for a while because the older 2 don't ever get to watch what they want to watch because everything they want to watch is not appropriate for the younger 3) and a present and I didn't once have to wipe any one's bottom!  How's that for a birthday gift?

We headed to Mom's today to pick up the little ones and to have a yummy dinner and CAKE!!!  Cheesecake to be exact, cause I just don't like Birthday Cake, weird I know!




and yes, they were STILL swimming...


their lips were blue but they were swimming!  Oh well, at least they won't need a bath tonight:)

I have to say that even though I am just 3 short years away from that big (gulp) 50, I really don't feel very 50ish.  Must be all that bottom wiping!!  Hehe!

  11. Happy Birthday, I would have never guessed that you were 47, I was thinking more like.... late 30s early 40s. Sounds like you had a great day!

  13. Happy late birthday!! I prefer cheesecake too or even pumpkin pie. My birthday is on around Thanksgiving every year. A couple of years ago my sister-in-law made pumpkin cheesecake so I got the best of both worlds. Yum!! Hope you had a great great birthday!
