My very awesome birthday involved:
Eating a total of three delicious vanilla cupcakes.
Tending to a total of five extremely bloody appendages when two Girls on the Run girls collided mid-run and destroyed their respective knees and elbows. I ended up using the â€˜emergencyâ€™ maxi pad in the first aid kit because they bled through all the sterile bandages; I then had to explain to two girls what a maxi pad was normally used forâ€¦ Awkward.
Reading all your kind comments wishing me a very happy birthday â€“ thanks so much!
Discovering that we have a massive plumbing leak and the kitchen ceiling is now soaked (okay, that part of my day wasnâ€™t awesome).
Getting a birthday gift of a Diet Dr. Pepper and a flashlight from Nicole (random, but exactly what I wanted and needed).
Taking a newborn care class.
I told my GOTR girls that we couldnâ€™t make their music recital because we had already signed up for the class, and one of the eight year olds was like, â€œWhat are you going to learn?â€ I explained they teach you how to change a babyâ€™s diaper, calm a crying baby, and bathe a babyâ€¦ and she looked at me like I was an idiot. Hah! An eight year old schooled me in childcare. But Iâ€™ve never, ever done any baby care at all. I actually found the class rather enlighteningâ€¦
Eats of the afternoon included a bar:
A peanut butter, raspberry, soy milk, and banana smoothieâ€¦
(I spy the beginnings of the babyâ€™s mural in the background â€“ my mother-in-law is painting it!)
And dinner: veggie burger, leftover quinoa, and an apple.
(I spy a greedy dachshund in the background!)
Sleep tight, friends!
