I just told the Husband that I’ve been getting heartburn recently – it’s like really weird as I haven’t had it since I was pregnant!
He innocently and instantly replied: “Yeah I get that sometimes when I’m putting on weight” – not a word of a lie, this is what he said.
Welcome to my world, it’s honest, cray cray and there’s never a dull moment!
Just so you know, there is no way that I could be upduffed – snip snip snip!
Anyhow – today our middle child turns four – well he isn’t officially four until 6.08pm – but his ‘birth’ day is today, December 17, just a day shy of a week before Christmas.
Okay, so I can’t resist, here is one of my beautiful baby and I just minutes after he was born.
Being born a week before Christmas has its ups and downs, as those of you who were born or gave birth around this time will know.
I have to say I feel a tad sad for our boy, his big day really is overshadowed by all that comes with Xmas.
However, thanks to a lot of advice from my AWESOME blog readers and friends, instead of a party I am taking our boy out for a special day, just him and I!
We’re going to a water theme park and he’s allowed to pick a gift from the HUGELY overpriced gift shop AND have a $25 ice cream.
It just also happens to be his daycare Christmas party and I have it on good authority that Santa might be visiting, in fact he’ll probably even know it’s my boy’s birthday!
I’d usually feel guilty that I wasn’t hosting a party – but this year I don’t.
I think that it’s because as a mother of three I very rarely get any one-on-one time with just one of my darlings, so when I have the best excuse ever to do so – I will take it!
I really can’t wait to devote my every thought and word to my precious boy.
We’re still having a family dinner – I even made
brought from the supermarketa cake that he can smash.
In saying all this, I have made a promise to myself that next year, his fifth birthday, I will have a HUGE party in November so that he doesn’t miss out on smashing a pinata and pass the parcel!
It’s hard having a birthday a week before Christmas, don’t you agree?
Were you, or one of your children or siblings, born around this time?
How do you get around it?
