Last week this handsome man turned… 40ish (he won’t let me tell!). I heart him something FIERCE. He works harder than anyone I know and does it mostly without complaint and always has a kiss and a smile for me. Seriously, cartoon hearts everywhere.
We made his favorite – banana muffins! This is the first year I haven’t tried to get creative with his lack of a sweet tooth (can’t believe I married a man who doesn’t like sweets, what the heck). He was so happy and these didn’t even last 24 full hours. I’ll tell you what, some chocolate cake and chocolate frosting are calling my name though… do I need a reason?
And THIS precious preschooler made Daddy a card and when she writes I melt a little because my babies are growing into honest-to-goodness, no foolin’ people. They aren’t just gibberish-laden sticky blobs anymore. (Well, the tiny one is, but she’s starting to grow out of it too). The very definition of bittersweet.
No really, I need some chocolate. It was a birthday for crying out loud, and there was no chocolate.
Don’t tell him I put this here because he doesn’t like this picture but I think it’s really cool. He works in an ER. It is rare when he gets to work in the control room. Usually he’s out, you know, just saving lives and what have you.
I am so proud!
Now lemme go find some chocolate…
