'Birthdays come but once a year...' Or is that Christmas?
Whichever it is, they both seem to come round far too quickly.
In our house we have four birthdays in just one week. That's not fair. No one really gets to be the special birthday girl (or boy). It all ends up being a bit of a joint effort. We cannot help but make one cake last the whole week (so silly and fattening to make four) and everyone's cards arrive stuffed into one large envelope on the same day (save on postage).
And why not.
However, after 22 years of sameness we really should be used to it by now. But clearly we aren't or I wouldn't be writing about it.
In the meantime, Happy Birthdays to my dear, sweet family... With love and luck, we will have many more! <3
