My Birthday

2 Oct

My birthday is coming up this Saturday. I always kind of dread my birthday. Its not because I fear getting old or anything. Its the center of attention and opening presents part that I dread. I hate being the center of attention, especially when I don’t feel like I did anything to earn it. I was born. From what I recall my mom did all the work that day. I also hate opening presents. I find it painfully awkward. I don’t really want people to give me stuff and I always panic because if I don’t like the gift I feel like it will show all over my face. I’m not big on parties and decorations and cake either.

I want to sit at home drinking chai, cuddled up in bed reading gossip magazines on my birthday. I want to spend the day in sweats and maybe watch a movie with my kids. I will be happy when my birthday is over and I can focus on the next birthday, Ariahna turning three.

Celebrate when I actually do something worth celebrating. Lets have a party when I hit a business milestone. Pull out the balloons and streamers when Nikkos grabs my face and tells me I am the most beautifulest mommy he has ever seen. THATS something worth celebrating.

On Saturday I will celebrate my parents for creating me and for the parenting they have done in the past and continue to do. As I humbly appreciate the gifts and birthday wishes I will secretly be waiting until October 7th when the birthday thing is all over.

Come on in and browse. The biscuits were made fresh this morning, the Slush Puppie machine was just refilled with a new bottle of red syrup, and we have the biggest selection of bait this close to town.
