I had a wonderful birthday yesterday thanks to my husband!
He surprised me completely! He got up and went to work like normal but an hour later he came through the front door and said “Happy Birthday” as he held a birthday card (with a giftcard) & a wonderfully delicious chocolate cinnamon roll out for me.
I was speechless. My only words were, “Why are you here?” He kept saying over and over “It’s your birthday!” Then he finally told me that he took the day off to spend with me and the boys on my birthday.
He had us get dressed and then we were off to a friend’s house to drop off the boys. Yes, drop off the boys.
You don’t even know how wonderful I felt at just the thought of having few hours without responsibility.
After leaving the boys we went off for lunch at one of my favorite restaurants and stuffed our faces. We then went to the mall and did some shopping and walked around without any stroller, diaper bag or any other kid-related item.
Another great thing to report is that the boys did great at our friends house. They haven’t really had anyone watch them for any real length of time outside of being cared for at our church nursery. No crying and no fussing. It made this mom feel good that they did so well.
Later we came home and enjoyed some birthday cake and I continued to revel in wonderfully planned day made possible by my husband.
I tell you it’s the simple things in life that can make your day.
I wish I had wonderful pics to post, but my camera batteries pooped out on me.
I’ll post some pics later cause I did end up getting my hair cut and styled in honor of my b-day.
