I forgot to make a birthday wish!

My 38th birthday was Monday, February 3rd 2014. I get very fixated on dates, and I love birthdays. Through college my girls and I called them our Hanukkah birthdays since they would last at least 8 days. If that’s still the rule, then mine is still going as I write this! My birthday falls on or around Super Bowl (I am in Marketing - do I need to call it “The Big Game” in my blog too?) so that always makes for a good party. For the past couple of years, we have gone to Andy’s uncle & aunt’s house and they make my birthday so special. I know a house full of babies makes a lot of Infertiles uncomfortable, but for me it makes me laugh and feel loved – and these babies’ moms are my biggest supporters and I hope to add to the crew of cousins soon. And if not, I will continue to love them and have fun with them. 

At halftime, we were called into the kitchen for my cake - coconut, and it was SO good – thanks Aunt Helen! All the kids were so excited, my mom was there too, and everyone gathered around for the candles and song. I was just feeling so loved that I didn’t make a wish when I blew out the candles! I didn’t even think anything of it until the next day when someone mentioned that they hoped my birthday wish would come true. 

When it comes down to it, my past 3 birthday wishes have been the same – to give someone else a birthday. I haven’t thought of it in quite that way until now and it hasn’t come true yet so I guess birthday candle wishes aren’t that important if you are happy in the moment. Thank you to my family and friends for making my birthday so special and always being there for me.
