Sixteen Candles

Ok. Actually add twenty to that. Yup. It's my birthday.


"You say it's your birthday ... bada bada bada ba ... It's my birthday too ..." Remember that movie. I loved it. Still do. If you need a fix ... go here. Just for kicks, here's what I looked like at sixteen.


There I am - right in the middle with that hair. I'm like an advertisement for one of those reunion/classmates sites. It took me years to get control over my locks. Having two children has depleted me of my curl (yippee) ... but added lots of gray (arg)! I have a crazy birthday story to share but that another post entirely. I do have a funny 'out of the mouth of babes' kinda story ... Henry and I had an interesting conversation the other night in regards to my birthday:

H: What kind of cake are you going to have?
Me: We probably won't have cake sweetie.
H: oh. Why not? How ohllldd are you going to be?
Me: Thirty Six.
H: No. I don't want you to be that.
Me: Why not?
H: Because I want you to stay as you are.
Me: And what is that?
H: Sixty.

Oh happy day!

Happy - belated - birthday.

Every woman that I've met in the States so far has had that hairstyle in their past...
