They say it's my birthday!!!

Well today, 28 years ago, my mom went thru 28 hours of Hell to get me here.  So first and most importantly, THANK YOU MOMMY!


Hmmm, that just doesn't seem possible.  I vividly remember all my birthdays under the age of 19 because my mom made sure they rocked!  So once again THANKS MOM!

Today I woke up, had breakfast in bed with my favorite little man while watching Minnie's birthday party on TV.  I reminded little Kyle that today was my birthday, his response, "SURPRISE!  Isn't that right mommy?"  Yes sweetheart, that sounds great!

Once we got dressed we headed over to the mall to spend a gift certificate (thanks Gini & Hollis!) at Sephora.  Love that place!  Anyway, then we ate lunch at Chic Fila and watched the "Too many people" trying to stay out of the Houston heat.  Then we strolled down the mall so that he could play in the big kid playground.  The playground now has a cotton candy vending machine next to it. 

Are you kidding me???  Not bagged pre-packaged cotton candy either.  Freshly made, on a long stick, light and fluffy cotton candy.  I am not sure there in much else I love more than cotton candy.  I am sugar junkie.  I will admit it.  So what?  I'm thinking, yes, it is my birthday, and I have a 2 year old.  What better excuse than to spend $2 on Heaven on a stick?  After Kyle finished playing we got our cotton candy and went and sat down on a bench to let me him enjoy his sugar on a stick.  He took one bite and said, "Ewww mommy this is terrible, you eat it."  NOT A PROBLEM KIDDO!

Insert mommy sugar induced euphoria here.  Play the elevator music of your choice.

At this point I chose to use my birthday to spoil my son.  Why?  Who knows, but it made me happy to hear him tell me "Mommy this is totally awesome!"  while riding the ridiculous choo-choo train around the mall.  It made me laugh and smile to watch him pretend to be Buzz Lightyear on the trampoline bungee jump thing.  So I guess that is a pretty good birthday present to me after all.

Now he is napping, I am enjoying chips and salsa while watching crap TV, and we are going out to dinner tonight.  I am not sure I could ask for a better birthday :)
