Despite my feelings, my family tried really hard to make my morning a special day. I got this awesome card from Lily... And these smiling faces greeted me at the kitchen table this morning...
And my kids worked really hard to make me a "special birthday breakfast." Lily laid out the napkin-placemat and placed two doughnuts on my plate. LOL (I didn't eat either one. Not a fan of doughnuts or the calories that come with them!) Matt made the French Toast sticks and prepared the cereal bowl and peeled the Cutie for me. Zoey sat next to me and sang, "Happy Birthday Toodles," (Toodles is Mickey Mouse's friend on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and she recently watched the episode where it was Toodles' birthday).
But the best part of the morning so far was when Lily's teacher called me to say that Lily announced to the whole class, "Today is my mom's birthday and she is 21 today!" Thanks, Lily...that truly made me smile!!
I think today is going to be a good day! :)
