36 versus 8.....I don't see the difference:)~


This is me around Konor's age:)~ so YOUNG!!

OK ya ya ya the 8yr old beats me:) he is GOOD!!

I would say I am just as flexible or even more so than a 8 year old:)
Today 8 years ago I was celebrating my Birthday by giving BIRTH to my second child Konor and barfing pizza and Birthday cake at the hospital (note do not try to eat minutes after giving birth....stomach can't handle more work that quickly:)....He was the BEST Birthday present God could give me!!

So last night I was all snuggled in bed ready to dream about CAKE...well that was the KID in me..even tho the dream did not even come close to enjoying a piece of did give me WTF and a smile...I some how ended up on a cruise ship and at a line of a food buffet with this little chubby snot nose kid (I think it was the chubby snot nose kid from "Bad Santa" got me on him)anyways, he was wanting me to help him put some fish on his of course I did and I looked around for his parents..I all of a sudden turned from that kid wanting to dream about CAKE and turned into a MOTHER...I was worried that this kid might be allergic to I was in hunt for his parents to see if it was OK for him to eat the fish...and in the search of trying to find his parents I WOKE up and laid there wide awake and was thinking WTF was that all about:) ha!! I think I would have rather dreamt about giving birth than this twisted dream..but who know maybe it is a sign for something:)

I remember around this time last year I received my first and only negative comment here on my blog and she stated that I acted more like a "child" than a "mother"...ya know what SHE IS RIGHT...but so what!! I DON"T need to just be a Mom who is saying "pick up your room"..."brush your teeth" " GO TO BED" SSHHHHHH...I do say these things a lot...but I look up the photo's above and I see more than just a Mom and son...I SEE a friendship....a little I would not trade it!! I think AGE is just a number!!

Happy Birthday my little man Konor...I LOVE you so much!! Daddy and I are so lucky to have you as our son:) We are so Proud of you!!!

We are celebrating our Birthday at the kids school carnival tonight....YIP I will always be a KID:) Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!!

I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to request a retake of that skateboard shot. I need to see those front wheels up in the air :-)

Happy Birthday to both of you! I hope you have a wonderful fabulous day.

p.s. What you think about yourself is always most important, no?

Konor, your mom is awesome and about a billion times more flexible than me (and she and I are the same age). Hope you all have a great time tonight.

Happy Birthday, Melissa. I agree that being friends with your children is very important. One day you will probably depend on them, too.
