It's my birthday today!
I was having a deep philosophical conversation with my 3-year-old this morning about how cool it would be if I became a kid again on my birthday.
So when I was asked to play Cootie, I said "No! It's my birthday! And I want to play Cootie AND make puzzles!" (Sidenote: I won Cootie, not that it matters of course...)
I followed that with toast with butter and jelly which is a treat because my adult self usually skips the butter.
And I showered! (that really wasn't the kid in me so much as the overworked mom who often neglects to care for herself.)
We walked to kindergarten this morning, because I definitely would have done that when I as little.
I did a happy birthday to me song and dance in the kitchen (does it go without saying that this was a silly dance?) twice, because my daughter said "Again!" and kid me said "of course!"
I suffered some disappointment when I realized I didn't have the ingredients or proper adult supervision to make pizza buns.But I recovered by skipping right to a delightful dessert of a large dollop of Reddi-whip squirted right into my mouth.
I was thirsty by then, so we made some Kool-Aid with 1/2 cup of sugar (because, hey, there's no need to go completely crazy!)
Now, I'm just sitting here with a full Kool-Aid mustache doing my best coloring with crayons. (Have you colored with crayons recently? It's really hard to stay in the lines with a blunt waxy stick.)
And it's only noon! It's busy being a kid.
How would you spend the rest of your birthday if you were a kid again? It's kind of rainy here today, so there very well may be some puddle jumping, worm chasing or (gasp!) a trip to Chuck 'e Cheese in my future!
