I’m pleased to say with age comes the ability to let people be kind and generous with their birthday wishes and gift giving! I turned cartwheels (cough, metaphorically not literally) when I opened the new camera G bought me with money earned from selling his drums. Once upon a time I would have insisted ”you shouldn’t have’‘ and felt a burden of guilt and responsibility at receiving such a generous gift).
I think this could be my best birthday yet. E sang Happy Birthday and helped to open all my cards and presents (not before suggesting Jingle Bells was the song to sing people on their special day). I may not change much from year to year but E certainly does – recalling past birthdays with him is a nice measure of how our little guy is growing up. Life doesn’t get better than this.
