Birthdays, Ugh…

I never really liked my birthday.  I always hating being the center of attention.  I did not want big class parties when I was in school and I didn’t want everyone to sing to me.  My parents were always great about it.  They would plan a night out for dinner and we would open our presents at home.

Now that I am a WickedStepMom, my birthday is no longer about me.  And I like it that way.  My birthday is now about 3 amazing girls sneaking around the house trying to hide what they are up to.  Its about them making me a cake, just like I do for them.  I think I prefer things this way.  Even though I am the center of attention, it is really more about teaching them how wonderful it is to do for others.

    Oh, I love your second paragraph. I can just picture your three girls being secretive and trying to surprise you with goodies and presents. I can’t wait until I get my first handmade birthday card from Sprite, when she actually thinks of doing it herself. Awesome!

    That’s so nice. And you’re enjoying it because it’s for them. Very sweet Spin.

    Hey, I have an award for you over on my site. It’s okay if you don’t want to “play;” just wanted to say I love your posts.

    Ok, that’s sweet. I hadn’t thought about it but you’re right… birthdays are about the kids now. I like it.
