Remember when you were a little kid and would come up with all sorts of crazy things that you wanted for your birthday?
Every shiny thing that caught your eye on a commercial or in the toy store. Or maybe something your friends had.
A list made with the innocence of a child, without realizing that all that stuff cost money and that you couldn’t possibly be given every single thing you wanted. You still had a list and opened up your birthday gifts with excitement, hope, and expectation.
Well, today is my birthday. I’m 34 today. Yeah, I’m proud of my age and have no problem saying exactly how old I am. Though you can feel free to say that I don’t look my age.
I’m going to suspend reality here for a few minutes to talk about what I’d like for my birthday: as if the Birthday Fairy were real. And like those lists from childhood, it’s going to be okay for it to be completely unrealistic and selfish and impractical not say things like “world peace” or “my boys’ tuition.”
So Birthday Fairy, please bring me:
*A new wardrobe. Age-appropriate and mom-appropriate, but still fun. And bonus if it all pulls in my mommy-tummy and can make me look like I have boobs. Plus, it all must come with coordinating shoes and accessories. Because it would be nice if I finally had some sort of style at this point in life.
*An iPad. Because yes, I’m jealous of my friends who have them. Plus, my 6y/o told me if have one, I could change the channel from it and not be stuck watching what Hubs wants to- he thinks that’s pretty cool- and I do, too.
*A plane ticket so I can go to Blogher.
*A golf cart. People tool around in these in my neighborhood. They look like fun and I want one. Preferably in pink
*A beach house. Sort of like I wanted Barbie’s Dream House when I was a kid. Only big enough to actually live in.
See, it’s not a whole lot I’m asking for, is it?
Such fun to pretend like any of these things would be gift wrapped for me today. Are you listening, Birthday Fairy?
Fairies aside, I’m hoping for a pair of sunglasses to replace the ones that
I my kids yes, I blame my kids even when it’s my fault broke a few weeks ago and a cake to share with my gorgeous little boys.
What would you want from the Birthday Fairy?
