The future of Birthdays

Celebrating your birthday after you have children is not only way better than before, it might even put Vegas to shame. My daughter is 21 months old and this is what we did to celebrate my birthday.


3:30 am – She was so excited it was my birthday she snuck into my room to say Hi! What is better on your birthday morning than waking up before dawn? Hours and hours before dawn.

6:00 am- Eat breakfast on the floor in the kitchen. Why eat breakfast in bed when you can sit on the cold tile and share half of a biscuit that your child slobbered on?

work, work, work, have a pie thrown at you, work, work, work

5:00 pm- Go out to eat at a Vietnamese Pho restaurant with the family. Nothing says birthday like eating noodles, drinking iced tea, and changing poopy diapers.

6:30 pm- The nightly dance party begins. We run into my daughter’s room, and she goes to the closet and picks a tutu. Then she yells dance, dance, dance. And so of course we get  the monkey.

Best Present Ever!

Why the monkey? Because it sings Rihanna naturally. (G rated)

There is nothing more perfect than dancing in tutus to pop music with your daughter.

Epic Birthday.
