What I've Learned Wednesday - Birthdays

That's right, it's my birthday.  My buh-buh-buh-birthday.

I was watching South Park a few minutes ago, Cartman must have seeped into my subconscious.

Anyhoo, I'm 33 today.  And here's what I've learned about birthdays:

1.  Despite multiple letters to several Presidents, they won't make your birthday a national holiday unless you do something really great, like found the country or something.  LIKE THAT HASN'T ALREADY BEEN DONE.

2.  Even though I'm an adult, I still get excited before my birthday.  Not sure if that ever goes away.

3.  When I was young, I assumed that my birthday would always be about me... nowadays, I let the kids pick where to have lunch.  I've become a selfless mother.  WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?

4.  I've learned that they still give you a free dessert at most restaurants when you tell them it's your birthday.  I have gained more than a few pounds so far.

5.  Most importantly, I've learned that you don't have to blog on your birthday. :)

I link up at these great parties!


  1. Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a great day, gotta love the free desserts. Dinner with the Hubs? hugs~Lori

  2. Happy Birthday!!! May you have a wonderful day of eating free desserts. Riley, my doggie, also happens to be celebrating her birthday today too!

  3. Happy Birthday to You!!
    Love the free dessert BUT #2 will get less and less, the years start flying by so quickly that you just really don't want to hear it's your birthday...again. Mine is coming up soon again, where do those 365's go?!
    Enjoy your day! :0)

  4. Coming out of lurkdom to say Happy Birthday!!!

  5. Awwww happy happy happy birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Happy Birthday. I just turned 33 on Saturday! Maybe we were separated at birth. We could be twins! What I have learned about birthdays is to take matters into my own hands. It is easier for me to take my kiddos shopping for my presents (dollar tree) than expect my hubby to do it and end up getting mad or depressed when he doesn't. It's fun to see what they pick out for me. This year it was a neon green baseball water bottle ('cuz green is your favorite color, mom, and you can take it running with you) and a set of mardi gras necklaces that I had to wear to church the next day. ;) Hope your day was just as special!

  7. Happy Birthday! I am turning 41 next month and I still get excited about my birthday and quite frankly insist on celebrating all month long.

  8. I'm sorry I missed your birthday. Yesterday I was with my folks, and today I kept the grandkids. I hope it was a great day for you!

  9. Happy Birthday! I hope you had an awesome day!

  10. Happy Belated Birthday--yes, you can have another slice of cake! :-)
