My husband ensured I had a very proud birthday cake in my custody this morning. How fun is this cake? I am very proud of my first 34 years of life: like all good adventures it has included ups and downs and joys and sorrows, but overall I've lived a very charmed life! I have great family and friends, and the best husband.
Since it is my birthday, my mother sent me a two page beautifully hand written note expressing her love of me and her appreciation for me. It is a note I will treasure always. When I got to the end of the note I realized, this note sums up why we need to have children. My mother (and father) have received so much joy from their two sons.
I'm 34 today and I bet we'll have babies before I turn 36.
