Just pretend that there's a witty title here, k?

Today’s my birthday, my birthday, my birthday. Me and my kids just always say it like that.

Thanks for all your good wishes, e-mails and comments. And yes, I really am only 35.....plus some....and some more...and maybe a little tad more than that. But I feel like I’m 35. I’ll post tomorrow about all the great gifts I got. But I think I already got my best gift today. I got a call from a new friend, we went to his house for Thanksgiving. They met my two boys for the first time. They met my daughter last summer. Jack called me and told me that my children were remarkable, successful and so personable. He also told me that it is a reflection on the parent I was to them. I’ve never truly stood back and looked at them from another’s perspective before. Hearing that was a wonderful gift that I am always going to treasure.

Oh and here’s a cute something that Capt’s son said yesterday while driving me and PookieBear back from the ballet:

Boy: looking out the rear window of the car at the sunset with long streaks of jet smoke trailing into the horizon, “Dad, is that a comet in the sky?”

Capt: “No son”

Boy: “Oh, good, I was worried there for a minute.”

I just love that kid!

The Nutcracker was magical. I had a great time with PookieBear. It was such a “girly, girl” thing to do and I loved having her to see it with. We made a gingerbread house before we left, something I’ve always wanted to do but never did. It was fun. I bet by now it’s all to pieces and devoured......Kids, don’t you just love them?

Liz: Thank you, what a lovely singing voice. Yes indeed we would have a blast together. I think I would laugh so much that my face would hurt. Come on out to NY we'll see the New York Ballet sometime.

Bethany: Thank you for visiting me and for the birthday wishes. I tried to comment on your blog but I can't for some reason.
