"It's my birthday!"

Yesterday I turned 28!! To be honest, at this point it is really just another day except I can get away with things I normally couldn't by simply saying, "It's my birthday!" I can eat TWO pop tarts for breakfast because, "It's my birthday!" I can rudely answer my cell phone during lunch and dinner because, "It's my birthday!" Can't miss calls on your birthday! I can refuse to do laundry, dishes or any other household chores because, "It's my birthday!" Several times yesterday I said, "Adeline, stop crying. It's my birthday!" and "Mary Selwyn, no whining. It's my birthday!" Oddly enough they didn't follow the rules of the "It's my birthday!" phrase! Oh well, better luck next year.

It is really too bad that your birthday is only one day a year, we should really start extending it to a week or once a month or something. I now have to wade through the toys to take care of the stack of dishes, piles of laundry and dirty bathrooms I ignored yesterday because today is only the day after my birthday. Turns out that doesn't count. The whining began first thing this morning and it is back to life as usual. Luckily I wouldn't trade a minute of it, even if every minute does bring me closer to 30!
