Well, on the 29th, I became one quarter of a century old. The days of childhood are over. :-) My friend Karen and I went out for the afternoon and went shopping and I was able to get two new swim suits for Hawaii...and any other time I need them. Why two?? Well, I've learned from my husband that two swimsuits are a good idea because you don't want to run the risk of bringing Black Algae from the ocean to the pool. Black Algae can be almost impossible to get rid of as it sends roots down into the plaster of the pool. Anyway, I WAS talking about my birthday and am now talking about algae. Back to the birthday... Karen and I also took some time to have a birthday treat while we were out.
In the evening my hubby took me out to a yummy Italian dinner...and that's where the title of this post comes in. Clara had been seeming to have some tummy troubles...but we went ahead and went. Well, after getting there she was sitting in her chair fairly quietly when all of a sudden she decided to toast Mommy's birthday by pretty much evacuating the contents of her stomach. It ran THROUGH the car seat and made quite a large puddle on the ground!!!! Marilen...if you are reading this, next birthday we just might take you up on that baby sitting offer!!!!
My birthday is also my Mom's birthday. I succeeded in making her 24th birthday her very best... AND her very worst!!!! I can now empathize with what that day must have been like! Below is Clara's special birthday message, which we sent to her Grandma on the 29th. Love you, Mom!!!
