10 on Tuesday How to Celebrate your Birthday

How to Celebrate your Birthday.

Interesting topic in our household, as we have a few complaints about our natel day. DD #1 is sometimes a Turkey baby, in fact, she is again this year. Fortunately, she likes Turkey and all the trimmings for dinner. DD #2 is mid-summer, all of the friends on vacation ruining her birthday party. Fortunately, her favorite cake is Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes, at least they are in season. Sonny boy is mid-March, has been known to fall during Spring Break, and again friends out of town. Additionally, two older half sisters are the two preceding days. He likes cake, more is good. Their father, his is December 24, and he has his own issues (in oh, so many ways, so he is not in the picture.) I think I have it worst of all, as mine is not even on most calendars three out of four years. That said, ways to Celebrate your Birthday...

  1. With Friends and Family.
  2. Quietly and with peace.
  3. Loudly with exuberience.
  4. With 10% off during your birthday month at your favorite LYS.
  5. Being pampered and taken care of.
  6. With three dozen long stemmed roses being sent to your office (OK, Mom was told to never do that again, long stemmed red roses are FAR too expensive in February.)
  7. Without any agenda but what comes to mind.
  8. Waking up with friends and/or family singing to you.
  9. In college, the year I had a birthday, there were actually two of us in our wing with that birthday. The hallway was decorated in our honor. Generally birthday girls got their door decorated.
  10. With love and happiness.

Wow, that's an amazing amount of conflict filled birthdays! I remember in HS, two of my friends were Leap Year babies. We had great fun teasing them that they weren't teasing 16 but only 4 instead. I'm sure they found it much less funny.
