A Sneak Peek Inside Wifey's House
Today’s my mother’s birthday. She said she’s not feelin’ it this year. I told her she doesn’t have to acknowledge the year if she doesn’t want to, but she should always celebrate her special day. Um, besides, it beats the alternative.
I can’t remember a birthday that she didn’t make me feel special – or, any other day for that matter. Whether it was a blowout party with a magician and all my cousins, or a private affair with homemade chocolate cake (“everyone should have a birthday cake on their birthday,” she’s always said) every one of my *insert really low number here* years have been celebrated.
I love my mom. She’s such a wonderful woman. Smart, beautiful, creative, strong, loving and she can spot a sale and a fabulous pair of shoes in a heartbeat. She’s my biggest cheerleader and has been a wonderful mother. She’s not perfect – which makes her even mo’ better – and I wouldn’t trade her for the world. For real.
I’ll listen to her and won’t make a big fuss today. She is my mama and will still give me the no-matter-how-old-you-get-I’m-your-mama look. But, she’s getting a cake … and some presents … and some fuss because I just can’t help it. It’s her birthday – she should have her cake and eat it, too.
