Sometimes The Glitter And Rainbows Look A Little Different

Today is my birthday.

Today is just another ordinary day. The world did not stop for me. There were no unicorns, no rainbows, no pink puffy heart stickers. Instead there were frozen waffles, runny noses and poopy diapers.

My birthday in 2010 did not turn out as I had envisioned. There is no flying car or robot maid. Instead I drove Bunny to school in an old SUV and I am the one picking up the legos that are left out for me to step on.

There is nothing extraordinary about my day, nothing special to mark my 41 years on this earth. Instead it is just an ordinary day filled with kisses and hugs, handmade birthday cards and pictures of pink unicorns with hearts and glitter.

And I'm totally cool with that (except I really, really want a flying car)

Happy Birthday Renee! I hope your hubby has some surprises up his sleeve. There better be some darn good cake in your tummy right about now.

A belated happy birthday to you. From one who is also constantly changing poopy diapers and stepping on Legos.
