Heart warm and fuzzy
I should preface this slightly by explaining we're not a huggy kinda family...We're close-knit but not in that gushy "i love you" kinda way...We're supportive and down-to-earth...we're not afraid of telling the truth either, but we don't micromanage him (we used to; like I guess most parents do when their kids are young).
Today is my son's birthday. He came downstairs and handed me a thank you card. It just said on the inside, "thanks for being my mom." Heart

I'm accepting it for what it is and I refuse to think..."what does he really want?" Tongue


Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

Well, halleluja! That's how it's supposed to be really, your son didn't give birth, you did.

I think all the birthdays belong to moms.

Yes, I've been saying it for a long time. Why do we celibate the anniversary of the day our mother ejected us from her birth canal? She did all the work, maybe even some planning in there about starting a family, creating a nursery, etc., not to mention 9 months of pregnancy and all that labor pain (curse you, Eve!). Shouldn't we be celebrating her efforts and giving her a party with presents?

Looks like your son gets it.

Amen, brother. No one should celibate anything, if you ask me.


And Mom, I think this is very sweet. Us, non-mushy types are better at the written word and such gestures anywayWink
Happy birthday to your kid, btw! [Image: d_birthday.gif]

Reminds me of the card my niece gave to her mother, my sister.

"Happy Birthday - You've been just like a mother to me."

Her choice though. The kid doesn't have that choice... I see birthdays more as a sorry to the child. I could have saved a lot of hassle if I hadn't been born. Tongue

For the non-touchy feely families out there, that card you got was the equivalent of a bear hug and an 'I love you' said out loud...in front of friends.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Hmmm, awkward typo. Maybe it's a Freudian slip, a product of my 3-year dry spell. Well, at least I have the internet...

RE: warm and fuzzy
Im reallly floating on air! Ok -- even tho I had told him I wouldn't -- I went out and bought the stuff to make his favorite meal, jambalaya! (husband and I are doing a low-carb diet and I'm allergic to shellfish). I'll just eat eggs for dinner and let him enjoy it.

Also, picked up some Ben and Jerry's for his dessert -- I doubt tho, he'll eat it tonight tho...

Husband is (mildly) grumbling -- too many carbs -- Only took the kid 19 years to learn how to kiss ass --I knew you'd cave and (finally) 'where the hell is "my" card?'
