St. Paddy's Day Baby

My St. Paddy's Day Baby is nine today.

I collected my strength and willed my sick ass out of bed today so that I could buy cupcakes and balloons to be delivered to the classroom of one Miss Priss, as is done at her school. (I'd still like to know who's mommy I have to thank for the whole mylars-must-be-delivered-on-the-birthday precedent...)

Of course, I may spoil her a bit on purpose. I have 24 hours to get my butt well, as I have the pleasure of dropping mucho deniro on a dozen nine year olds tomorrow night, before entertaining them at my abode for a sleepover.

Clean. Get very little sleep. Wake to new mess. I love these things!

(Perhaps, twelve years from now, if she'll still have me, I'll take Miss Priss to Savannah to ring in the 21st.)

You are a goddess...and a fine mom.

I remember -- back in the day -- a gal names Mrs. Ferchack always set the birthday bar *very* high. She was the first mom to introduce cup-cones (cupcakes, made in ice cream cones, decorated with oodles of swirled icing) and Jell-O gigglers.

She never said as much, but I bet my working mother wanted to throttle her!

Feel better!

They have birthday parties? Novel concept. Never had one. I would be honored to buy the first round of shooters on her 21st, iffen it were in Savannah for background noise. I almost feel like family anyway. Well, if you consider Uncle Waldo part of the family.

You done well, Key. Good job.

Thanks hon. I told her tonight of land where the waters run green on her birthday. She was duly impressed: "COOL! When can we go?!"

Which Deniro will you drop? I kind of like Heat, cuz it also has Pacino and captures both in a more reflective, less balls-out action mode. But Shark Tale might be more appropriate for 9-year-olds.

Good Luck!
