Today is my birthday
My 35th birthday in fact... DAMN that makes me feel old!!
Remember when you were a kid, and you thought anyone in their 30's was an old man or woman, practically dead?? That's ME now!!
Ok, so 35 isn't really that old. I might be over reacting just a smidge...
Having my birthday fall on a weekday meant that we didn't do too much. Henry also fell ill at daycare, so he was in no mood to party.
He did wish me a Happy Birthday though...at 0530 in the morning.
I woke to his usual calls of "DAAAADDYYYY!!!" I stumble into his room, bleary eyed and in pain from stubbing my toe on my wife's suitcase just a moment before, and when I ask the little guy what's wrong, he responds with:
"Happy Birthday can I have nappen please?" (Nappen = the pacifier in Sveeedish)
Yes, I was more than a little bit confused.
HOW does my almost 3 year old know that it's his dad's birthday, and more importantly, WHY is he choosing to wish me a happy birthday so early in the morning??
Anyhoo, I spent the afternoon playing with the boys (the best birthday a guy can ask for!), and opening gifts and cards with my wife (the best WIFE a guy can ask for :P ) before stuffing my face from the awesome Greek feast my girl prepared as a birthday dinner.
I'll be celebrating again with a joint party with Henry in a couple of days when he turns three...THREE??!? When did he get so old?? :P
My name is Ryan, and this is my blog.
