will you still love me?

when I'm 34????

yeah. today's my birthday. holy crappernuts. I'm 34, and the mom of 2 kids. I swear if anyone asked me 10 years ago where I thought I'd be in 10 years, I doubt I'd answer that I'd be sitting on the couch watching my two year old daughter pour water from her cup onto her head and praying that the grunting from my less-than-two-weeks-old-son is really just the result of him pooping, and not the onset of another demand to be milked yet again.

But I'm here now, and all things considered, it's not so bad.

yesterday was a pretty random post, but that's kinda how things have been flowing around here.

BUT... today is my birthday, and for all intents and purposes, it's the beginning of a new year for me. I'm excited for what the new year will bring for the fever.... both the knowns and unknowns.

I know for sure that this month will be busy, what with the new baby, visitors, Christmas, then Danny's Baptism on the 30th. Springtime will see my students and my very own Godchild celebrating their first Communion (trip to new jersey with two kids... whooo-boy!)

there will be potty training of Rhena, there will be first words and first everything elses with Danny.

there will be feeble (but hopefully successful) attempts for me to lose weight and get into a shape other than 'flubby'.

and a whole lot more. shit, I may even do another template one of these days.

but for now, I'll just leave that one in the category of 'unknowns' and enjoy the day. or at least enjoy the cupcakes that are about to come out of the oven. Can't go wrong with a little cupcake action on the birthday.

happy december, gang!

I know I haven't visited in a long time, but I knew today was your birthday so what better time to come by. Happy Birthday! Also, congratulations on the second little one. I wish you all well and hope for some wonderful "unknowns". For me the unknowns are almost always more interesting and rewarding than the knowns.

For example, can you believe Catherine and I have now been living together for a year. I know that is something no one saw coming.

Best :)

There should be some postpartum rule about all mirrors from the chest down being banished from the house. Your tummy will get better! For now just enjoy eating without puking! I tried to warn you about the pee, but I guess some people just have to learn from experience. ;)

Although it's too late for me to call you now, I wanted to say a BIG OLD HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A WONDERFUL OLD PAL! Congrats on all that you have going on now. It's an exciting/exhausting/exasperating and joyous moment to be living in! Grab onto all that you can and enjoy the ride. Trust me: It gets easier to clean the walnut shells. Much love. Debbie J.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I've thought about calling a few times, but I know how it is to try to talk on the phone with rugrats demanding all the attention.

Hope you had a wonderful day!
