Happy Birthday to Me

Turned 38 today. Not altogether thrilled with that. But spending the day with my 3-year old niece certainly helps put life into perspective. Namely, when can we go outside and paint?

Other Darcy-isms to remember "I live in a home filled with joy", "can we paint our face?", singing Row, Row, Row your boat at increasingly louder volume depending on the size of the boat going by in the river (tankers get shouted at), and finally - piece de resistance, practicing singing Happy Birthday (to me) at full volume ... so much for the surprise element!

It was good to stay in my pjs until 11am, discuss the merits of pb&j over cheese & jam, how sometimes you just have to ask somebody to hug you, and also racing as fast as you can but not being afraid to stop and catch your breath in the most dramatic manner possible.

Turns out this birthday was a lot more fun than I expected.

Sounds like you had a good day. I'm glad. I love the sound of the "Row Row Row Your Boat" game! It reminds me a little of "OH MY GOD YOUR WHEEL IS TURNING!!!"
