Thanks Loopy, Chris, Marge, Kari, Nancy, Maree, Karen, Myrtle, Larry...
Yep, this year's birthday was unlike any before. Amazing, the difference in perspective one gains, when influenced by the needs (which I'm learning are mostly "wants"...lol) of a seven year old. So, we had dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate icing, chocolate ice cream and Lay's potato chips. And of course, milk. (My own slightly nauseating Southern birthday tradition.) Daryl contributed the entertainment, by way of a half dozen or so neighborhood kids SCREAMING out the words to Happy Birthday...at 9AM, on Sunday morning, after having agreed to let me sleep in for my birthday since I haven't slept past 6:45 AM in about a million years and as everyone knows, sleeping is one of my favorite things.
It was a great day and I thank you all for thinking of me (and the tomato boy as K calls him...lol). Bleary eyed photos will be available shortly. Oh and if anyone has an extra handbook on this parenting thing, could you send it over??? Daryl didn't come with one and I'm pretty much just making it up as we go along.
Thanks again ya'll. Made me smile...
