My Lazy Birthday

I saw a commercial once…. can't remember it at all, actually.  Can't remember what they were selling to save my life.  All I remember was the song that was playing.  When I grow up I wanna be an old woman.  That's the verse I remember.  It's a great line.  It's exactly what I want to be.  Every year I get a little older.  Can't stop that.  I get a little wider here and there. And I can definitely tell my body is now on the downslope of good health.  The thing is, I'm not sure I've had those "good ol' days" that everyone is always pining over as they age.  If anything, I feel like the best is yet to come.  And I wish more than anything to be able to see my boys happy and old themselves.  So I welcome each birthday with open arms and I hope God blesses me with many more.

P and I are a lazy couple.  We really are.  Don't get me wrong.  We're a far cry from those folks in that space community in Wall-E.  Not quite there yet.  But we love to just …. do nothing all day.  We used to wake up late on weekends…and then just snooze the day away.  It. Was. Awesome.  But with two little ones…well, snoozing would be sleeping in until 7am.  So when asked what I wanted to do for my birthday, I kept thinking about those lazy Saturdays I spent with my P.  How wonderful it would be to do that with my babies as well!!  Obviously they didn't let us sleep in or anything absurd like that.  But we did take turns napping and spent a good amount of time cuddling in bed.  It was the best.  I'm 36 years old and I have more than I could ever have dreamed of.  Truly.  Life is good.  God is very good.   Happy birthday to me!!!!

Awesome hair in bed.

In our house, expect your feet to get sniffed.

Daddy's turn!

Some motor skill practice while we're at it.

He just can't sit still anymore.

No more pictures.  More tickling!!!


Love these guys to death.

Daddy is King Tickler, for sure.

So handsome.

My version of heaven.
