Birthday Wishes

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.”  ~Life’s Little Instruction Book, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

A friend sent me that quote recently and took away my excuse for not writing.

So, here I go.  A short little story to get me going again. 

It’s been quite the headache this year trying to make plans for Jackson’s birthday.   Last night we chatted about what he wanted to do and tried to confirm details for his party with friends.  “So do I get to open my presents Friday [his actual birthday] or do I have to wait for my friends to come over on Saturday?”

“No, you can open presents after cake on Friday.  And you still have to decide what you want for dinner too.”

“So, I get whatever I want?” 



“Yes, it’s your birthday, you decide what you want to eat.”

“Okay.  [Smug grin spreads across face ]  I would like cake first with ice cream.   Then…spagetti.”

    I knew there was another reason why I love this child so much. Ice cream first – way to go, Jack.

    As usual, I am always glad that I stopped by here. Your stories about your children always make me laugh or smile. Ice Cream first! Awesome idea!
