(I suggested the jazz hands. They add a little something)
This shall be my ode to my husband. But I am no good at odes. Just know that. He does, but I won't let that stop from trying!
My husband is a very patient man. He married me when I was the tender age of 18, his idea even! He has waited very patiently as I have grown up. I'm still working on it, in fact. We have been married for 11 years now, and every year gets sweeter.
So the sad, sad truth is that I had my first child three days before my husbands birthday and so my husband has had crappy birthdays ever since.
My eldest child gets rockin birthdays with a theme and a decorated house and a friends party every year. It's pretty awesome. I like to make big deals out of birthdays. I like to pick up my kids from school at lunch time and party at Mcdonalds. I like to make them feel special all the day long. A birthday is just once a year, so I enjoy making others feel special on their day.
But there is just something about me and my first child having a birthday just three days before my husband. Something about it that makes me seriously too exauhsted to make more than one person a very special birthday party in one week.
This year was the year of the husband.
I invited 20 friends over for dinner. Oh yes. I made dinner for them all. To be fair, I asked some of them to bring salad. I shopped for silver and yellow decor, decorated to my hearts desire (almost, I think there could have been more balloons), and I tried to think of things to make my dear husband feel special on his day. We cleared the tables and chairs away after dinner and dessert and had a racous night of games afterwards. I had to pretend to be a dog at one point. It was legendary. You had to be there.
I know what you are thinking.
"WHERE can I get one of those crowns???" Well, everything can be had at a price my dear. AnYtHiNg.
Yeah, my art skills aren't fantastic. So sue me. One of our friends at the party asked me if my children had helped make the crown.
I have really great handwriting as well. My handwriting is as awesome as my art skills.
I sure do love my husband. I am so glad I finally was able to give him the party I have wished I had given him for the past 9 years. Love you babe. You are wonderful.
