It's that time of the week again Mama Kat's writing assignment!
I remember when.......birthdays were eagerly anticipated!
I remember when the night before your b-day you could hardly sleep because tomorrow was your BIG DAY!!
I remember when the morning of your b-day arrived you were up at 4:30am because you were too excited to lay in bed any longer!
I remember when you got dressed for your b-day you had a VERY SPECIAL outfit to wear to school! It was either a brand new outfit or your absolute favorite!
I remember when you went to school you felt like Miss America because it was your special day and everyone knew it!
I remember when you went to eat lunch you always had something special in your lunch box from your mom and everyone wanted to trade with you because just for today yours was the BEST lunch EVER!!
I remember sitting in class trying to pay attention to what the teachers were trying to teach you, but did they not understand that TODAY WAS YOUR SPECIAL DAY and you could care less about what they had to say!
I remember being so thrilled that the school day was finally over and now you could go home and celebrate YOUR SPECIAL DAY the right way!
I remember everyone being extra nice to you because TODAY WAS YOUR DAY...even Sissy!
I remember going to bed that night disappointed that YOUR DAY was ending and you would have to wait an entire year before YOUR SPECIAL DAY was here again!
If you haven't guessed it today is MY SPECIAL DAY! As you can tell I am over the moon with excitement! I have lots of friends that have b-day months and b-day weeks, but I can't seem to get into all of that! I don't know why, I love my birthday just as much as the next guy, but I don't like to be in the center of attention. I am by nature a shy person so when something draws attention to me I shrink away from it! I was more nervous on my wedding day of walking down the aisle and having everyone looking at me than I was of getting married. Ha..Weird I know.
Now that I am a parent it is now my responsibility to make sure that Tay gets her SPECIAL DAY and I cannot wait to take on this job!!!

Thanks for caring,
