A Memorable Birthday For Mom

Yesterday was Mom's 34th birthday. She woke to find this thoughtful card from me— It's all Dad's fault. He's the one that helped pick it out for me. Perhaps he should have actually read the card before purchasing it?! At least it made Mom laugh! Mom chose takeout sushi for her birthday dinner celebration, but before Dad and I left to go pick it up, I took a face dive off the bed warranting a visit to the emergency room. This was my third trip to the ER in my short life (remember the face dive I took off the couch and then there was the Pine Sol drinking incident!). Thankfully, everything turned out to be okay. I just had a badly bruised forehead, bloody nose and a fat lip. We got home from the ER so late that we decided to call it a night and celebrate Mom's birthday the following evening. Fast forward 24 hours. Mom finally got that delicious Oxidiana takeout sushi she wanted. Mmm Mmm so good! And a cheesecake with so many candles it almost burnt the house down.
Happy Birthday Mom. May all your wishes come true! How about no more cards claiming her son is a woman and no more ER visits!

Happy belated Birthday! Between that card, a fat lip, and sushi, I really don't know what else you could want ;)

Happy Birthday. Hope Currier is feeling better. Your blog is really preparing me for what it's going to be like to have a little boy.

Elams, Thanks for the birthday wishes. Yup, life with Currier is definitely not boring! And the card, I thought it was a joke! Trent said the NEX was closing and he just grabbed the first “Mother” card he saw!

Sognatrice,
Thanks for the birthday wishes. Happy belated birthday to you as well! I won’t forget this birthday anytime soon!

Kerri,

Currier, your mom is a brunette, I love it! I will love you if you decide to grow up and be a woman. I will love you if you grow up to be a man. I will love you even if you grow up to be a Yankees fan....well, maybe!

Cheryleeski,
Thanks for your hair approval. Do you think my hair will win? And thanks for loving Currier as a man, woman or Yankees fan!

Ro,
Glad you like the birthday hair! It was one of those mid-life-crisis-I-need-a-change things.

Kathy,
Thanks for the birthday wishes and very kind compliment. Currier's boo boo is all healed and he's ready for another one!

Meagan,
