My Birthday Wishes.....

Well, it's my birthday. A little boring as it's the most popular day to have a birthday in the U.S. It's 1 day after my sister's birthday, 3 days after my brother's, 8 days after my daughter's, and 9 days before my son's birthday. But, still. It's mine. And I am a believer in celebrating life's little moments. So here are my birthday wishes:
  • For Parker to walk into his room after school and come out 1/2 an hour later with his homework done.
  • More twice baked potatoes from my mom....she spoiled me with some on Sunday. I LOVE them.
  • Shopping....no kids.
  • While shopping, it would be great to find magic jeans that fit perfect.
  • Being able to exercise today when I want. Not just when the kids are sleeping.
  • My own personal hotel room. (and room service)
  • Sweater weather
  • A nap
  • For Quinn to want to play a DIFFERENT video game than MarioKart.
  • For preschool to go for 8 hours.
  • To not have to work. I seriously love my job, but no one should work on their b-day.
  • A call from the VA hospital (I'll explain later)
  • Wow....for my marriage to survive. Just heard on the radio that my profession has the highest divorce rate (must be all the hot male dancers). Couple that with the "parents of autistic spectrum kids" rate of divorce (80%)....wow. I'm screwed!
  • For Macy to say Mamamamama all day (oh wait...she already does =-)
  • Diet Coke...I've tried to cut it out, but I don't do things like that on my b-day.
Well....miracles can happen. If not, just time with my cuties will be sufficient. As long as they act cute.

Ahh, I love the list. I have been hoping for Bill to get a good call today. That would be the best birthday present!! I wonder how much it would cost to have preschool go for 8 hours a day.

I love your lists too! Great, funny, honest, and hopeful ~ just like you!

And I say on your birthday, eat what you want, drink what you want because it's only once a year!

Happy Birthday!

Happy BDAY Honey!
I'm sorry, none of the above are what's wrapped up in the family room, but Monika did drop off the Diet Coke...so some wishes do come true!
Here's hoping on the VA!!!
If I take on the Preschooler and Parker's homework, you can go shopping for sweaters and potatoes and go workout...so than maybe we can save our marriage for one more day.
I know you'll never let me teach dance for you, since my repeated offers are always met with strong and quick resistance - I think a class on funny dance moves (sprinkler, shopping cart, cowboy, lawnmower, etc) should be core curriculum.

Here's hoping all your wishes come true...especially that hotel one!

Love Bill

Happy Birthday kid! I might pay enough to watch Bill teach that dance class for you to afford the hotel room for the day.

I hope the VA calls too.

Enjoy your day!

Oooh. Let Bill teach Megan's class! Pleeeease? I need her to learn some of those sa-weet moves!

I hope your birthday wishes all come true (someday!).

Happy Birthday Liz! I think we Libras need to have a celebratory lunch together. And we can even say we are celebrating Stacey's birthday too. And Becky can come too even if she isn't a libra. That is how we libras are- always thinking of others!
