I am sick.
And its my 44th birthday.
And it's the first time in 7 years that my birthday has not on a workday. So I had big plans that did not involve diapers or cough medicine.
Did I mention I am sick? Week 3 of a chest cold. A headache that feels like my brains are about to be ripped out of my left ear.
So I spent my birthday coughing a lot and hanging out with a bunch of children (and a husband) who were also coughing. Only 3 of 6 children actually ended up being dressed today. After the first 3 it just seemed like too much effort.
Can I get you a little more whine with this cheese!?!
In my weakened state I did not jump right up and put a new diaper and Louise. Boy, did she show me. She climbed her little naked self right up onto the coffee table....and peed on it.
She has got a real mean streak.
Happy Birthday Mommy.
Yes, that is 3 days worth of unfolded laundry on my couch. I was not going to fold laundry on my birthday.
PS--just before I got ready to post this entry Grace, Haven, and Brian brought me a bowl of ice cream with a lit candle in it and sang "Happy Birthday" to me. I might just be feeling a little better already.
