Happy Birthday To Me!!!

Today is my birthday. Since most of you will feel obligated to be nice to me, I’d like to use this period of amnesty to make some confessions:

Ten Birthday Confessions:

  1. I recently tried to return $200 to my insurance company. It annoyed them.
  2. My longest running fear is being forced to lick a public toilet. No one has ever tried, and how I developed the fear is a loooong story.
  3. Daddypotamus set up this blog without telling me. I told him he just wasted $10 registering this domain because I would never use it. Ahem, sorry babe.
  4. I once did gymnastics in a bar. That is all you need to know.
  5. I occasionally use words that my English Major husband doesn’t know.
  6. I live for my daughter’s smile. But when she grins at strangers my heart breaks a little. Although we have made a lot of progress there is still visible damage to her teeth. I feel completely responsible. UPDATE: Her teeth are completely remineralized. Yay!
  7. In my house towels have to be folded a specific way and then placed in the cabinet with the seams facing the back. All the stripes have to line up exactly. If someone else “helps” me and it’s not “right” I WILL redo it. I have no idea why I am OCD about this, but I’ve promised myself that I will never “fix” it if Katie decides to “help.”
  8. Daddypotamus and I accidentally  selected the same birthday cake photo to write our birthday posts.
  9. I was once attacked by a rabid duck. He was just about to take me down when my future husband assaulted him with a giant textbook.
  10. I sometimes dream about a real life event and/or situation only to find out that it really happened. In the two cases I am thinking of I was intentionally kept in the dark about the events.

You thought I was weird already? Oh well!

    Happy birthday! You have the same birthday as my Daddy!

    If only I knew words MY English major husband doesn’t know. {sad face} j/k…it really used to bother me, but I have grown up a bit and have accepted the fact that I will never be as SMRT as he is.;)

    Happy Birthday Heather! I agree with Kathryn, you left us in the dark with some of those things on your list!

    Enjoy your day!

    Please keep Mommypotamus in your prayers, folks. She’s had swollen feet and some severe back pain that makes it difficult to walk.

    Thanks for your love and best wishes!

  8. Tiffany@ The Coconut Mama says:

    @Daniel – We’ll be praying for her! Thanks for letting us know and please keep us updated if possible.

      Thank you Tiffany! I had a pinched nerve or something that was restricting blood flow to my feet. Thankfully it resolved after a chiropractic adjustment and I’m headed out for a date with my hubs!

    Glad your feeling better! Hope you have a wonderful time with your hubby =)

    Your list cracks me up, and I totally want to know more about the gymnastics, LOL.

    Ha, Kathleen Pelton! I must admit I wrote this before Micah was born. Now that I have two I am happy just to have clean towels!
