This morning I woke up, forgetting that it was even my birthday. That seems to be the way it is the older I get – not as big of a deal anymore. Anyway, unbeknownst to me, Elli had snuck downstairs to make me a birthday breakfast and Janie to make me a card. She came up to my bed with a plate of perfectly cooked eggs, some cinnamon toast, and a cup of tea. Janie followed with a really sweet card. A minute later, Sam snuck in beside me with a huge smile, a kiss, and said “Happy Birthday Mommy!” as he dropped his whole collection of super heroes and lego people on my lap. I don’t think it could get any sweeter than that! Oh, and then Nevi tinkled on my bed!:) Something from everyone!
