Doing the Running Girl
July 31, 2008 | blogger birthday bonanza!,Jojo,Me,The Nugget
Cuz it’s my birthday. No really, I didn’t do the Running Man, I did more of a two thumbs pointing at me while dorkin’ out my legs. When did I do this? Yesterday, when the UPS guy brought my second bouquet of flowers! Today, a third bouquet is arriving, courtesy of The Nugget (the first two were from Jojo and Mr. Squirrel).
They’re gorgeous, btw, but the real point? I danced in front of the UPS guy, and he loved it. AND WHO WOULDN’T?
So it’s my birthday. The Nugget has already gifted me several hours of sleeplessness, one outfit change for me, one outfit change for him and loads of adorable smiles and coos.
Jojo? Ohhh my dream boy. He awoke in a great mood after getting to bed very late after attending his first minor league baseball game with daddy.
We were in mid-dressing when he decided to grab his gift for me and head downstairs. My little naked Jojo sang to me (part of) the birthday song and gave me my new Monster Truck (the one I always get stuck playing with has a bent axle…very annoying, let me tell you) while traversing the steps to our first floor. And to prove that he is my child, he excitedly told me “I bought this for you at Target!” Ahhh my love.
Now I’m alone at home, as the boys are (still) transitioning to daycare. I have a load to do! More cleaning out of the closets (note: curses to JEN for suggesting I take some clothes to a consignment shop…now I’m re-organizing AGAIN…but kisses to you if I get some cash)! More trips to Target and Other Stores! More Laundry! But hey, I get to do it all without crying children.
Then, lunch with Mr. Squirrel, more errands and perhaps even a (cue the choir) NAP!!!!
I already miss my chitlins, so I may be picking their squeezable biscuits up early before Family Dinner and PRESENTS. Not that I’m excited. Except that I am and YES, Smitty, I heart the adorable flip-flops you sent me and am already wearing them and who wants to stake claim on the awesome little trifecta of pendants sent to me from an adorable Etsy shop? There was no note…my many thanks and oooohs and ahhhhs are up for grabs! Act now (and really, I love the pendants and am wearing the squirrel one!).
Ok, I love you all. Thanks for making the past couple of years extra awesome. I cannot frigggginnnnggg believe I’m THIRTY SIX. Yes, AlyndaBear, you may be MUCH younger than me, but at least I don’t have a crazy cat nipping at my toes. Seriously?
