So it is March 1, 2015. Another year has gone by and it has crept up on me like a lightning bolt! March is BIRTHDAY month. All three of my boys are born in March. My mother in law and brother too. So that is a ton of cake and ice cream!
My mother in law, may not have a get together this year and if she does I will have to avoid the cake and ice cream or lie and tell her I ate some already which I am not a liar so that isn't my first choice. She gets angry and insulted if I do not eat what is given to me. So I may try to avoid it. Although she is almost blind and wouldn't see if I ate it lol.
My brother, who knows what he has cooked up. His wife usually gets him an ice cream cake and depending on their moods would get mad at me if I didn't eat. I am confident I can skip the cake and get by not eating my way through this day.
My three kids. The youngest is first. He has already gotten the ingredients for a chocolate devil's food cake with cream cheese frosting, mini chocolate chips and home made vanilla ice cream. Ok ok ok! I gave in to his demand. It is my favorite too. I'm gonna have to be strong with this one. Maybe not totally nix it from that day for myself but allow myself a taste. Ugh, weaknesses!
My middle son is next. He hates cake. He always asks for a cake made of PB & J sandwiches. And maybe some frozen yogurt on the side. This year he said he didn't want any cake. But I am sure he will want the fro yo. I can handle that!
My oldest is last. Not sure what he will want. He is trying to eat healthier. He loves strawberries so maybe we can think up an nice healthy desert using those. That shouldn't be an issue and everyone will still feel like they are eating something special.
OH where does the time go?? Everyone gets older ... yes, I know this. But you blink and the kids are catching up on the adults! And the adults complain they feel physically old but their soul feels 27! Happy, sad, proud, amazed and curious is how I feel looking at everyone getting older. Wondering how life will continue to go. Taking in each day and making it the happiest I can make it. Enjoying those that I love every chance I get.
Ah... MARCH. May I be strong, smart and well aware of the decisions I make this month! Let the birthdays BEGIN!
