You Say It's Your Birthday?

Monday is my very amazing husband's birthday.  Today being part of his birthday weekend, I let him make me pancakes and then I let him take the girls to his dad's house for a couple hours.  Come to think of it?  This feels a lot like my birthday.  But that's just how my husband rolls.  Awesomely.

Jim was born on the 28th to be clear.  A lot of people ask him if he's a leap year baby and just celebrates his birthday on the 28th.  That is not this case for him, but my friend Suzie is actually a leap year baby.  I feel a little famous for knowing her.  When I learned that tidbit, I wondered aloud if that was her personal fun fact when she had to share something interesting about herself on like the first day of school or whatever. But she is super cool and very interesting and had other (better!) facts to share.  I always longed for such a cool factoid though.  I dreaded that stupid ice-breaker (i.e. degrading power tactic teachers used to break us down) because a) There is nothing particularly interesting or unique about me and b) I was always in a class with people who were triplets, national equestrian champions, kids who could lick their own elbows, or yes, people born on February 29.  I never stood a chance anyway.

Now these guys are golden when it's their turn to share an interesting fact on the first day of school:

As is this dude:

@Sandra: Happy Birthday to you Dad! I did NOT know that. It's a great day to be born! :)

@Charlene: Thank you for the birthday wishes (I'll pass them on). I'm glad you like the design! It took me about 800 previous designs to get here! :)

Can you tell we're so close? I'm sure he's really bummed that it took crazy stalker lady from Texas who's sitting in the pen type type typing away this long to send his birthday wishes. Sorry Jimbo. Hope your birthday was swell.

And YOU, missy. You happen to be one of the most interesting people I know. I love hearing about all your lovely stories and your wonderful family, and your very silly and endearing sense of humor. Take that, National Equestrian Champions who can lick your elbows while being born of Feb 29th/28th!!!!! you got this Jules!
