So...my birthday is this Sunday. Father's Day happens to fall on that day too. GASP! THE HORROR!! For some crazy reason, DADS get their OWN DAY. I mean...who wants to celebrate DADS, right? ;) Ok, so I'm a little selfish when it comes to my birthday. I'm very aware of that fact.
When I was born - on Father's Day a looooong time ago - my Dad said it was the best present he'd ever gotten. And he was right. I'm pretty friggin' awesome (my Dad is a GREAT judge of character, obviously).
So is it any WONDER that I want my day ALL to myself? I think not. So ever since that fateful Father's Day, I've had to share quite a few birthdays with the men in my life. Here I am, trying to celebrate this...my DAY OF BIRTH...and these men are trying to freeload on MY DAY. I mean, get your own day.
I obviously have a hard time sharing things. This is gonna sound so crazy, but I hoped
SO MUCH Davis wasn't born on my birthday. His scheduled due date was June 14...and I was soooo happy when he arrived (a week late) on the 20th. I mean, I ALREADY had to share my birthday with all the fathers of the world, and to throw my baby into the mix too? No thanks.
I'm kidding of course. But only semi. :)
My point is, that in all the years of complaining about having to share my birthday, I'm getting to the age where I don't really want to celebrate my birthday at all. I mean, yes load me up with free presents and let me stuff my face with cake, duh. Other than that, though.. I don't really want to RECOGNIZE the fact that I'm getting older every year. It makes this "sharing" thing a little bit easier.
I know, I know. I'm only turning 29. Calm down, you say. You're not that old, you say.
I am realizing that this getting older crap does have benefits. I mean, I have tons more bills to pay than ever, I know who I am waaaaay more than I did when I was 28, I get carded ALL the time when I buy fireworks, and nobody hits on me anymore. Good times I tell ya.
Seriously, I am excited to celebrate with my Dad & Hubby this Sunday. They are pretty awesome - so I SUPPOSE I can share my awesome day with them. They can thank me later.
P.S. Did you notice anything different when you clicked over here today? Yup! I got a new blog design! My uber-talented-beautiful-amazing-designer-friend Nicole whipped this bad boy up for me!
