I started my morning at work crying in my supervisors office. We were going over the status of projects I was working on, when she asked if I need anything. I replied I needed a hug because my day started off badly. When I dropped my son off at my families this morning, my sister wished my son happy birthday. Oh no! While in the back of my mind I knew his birthday was this week, I totally forgot it was exactly today. This is the 2nd most important day in my life! How could I have forgotten?! I felt so awful!
Usually on his birthday morning I like to sing the happy birthday song to my son and have a special snuggle moment just us two. But this morning there was no song or cuddle moment. Ugh. Ugh. I told my facebook community and they were very supportive of my bad mommy moment. Most felt he wouldn't even notice. But still I felt I couldn't let the day past without doing something.
As I wiped my tears, I vowed I'd make it up to my son when I got home.
What did I do? I gave him his own private birthday party. Of course I knew there'd be a mini riot from friends and family not invited to the party so I made a video. Yup, you can all sing along and wish Daniel a happy birthday. Get ready, set, sing!
After his song, he happily ate his piece of banana cake. Funny thing about the cake choice. He was the one who picked it so I don't wanna hear an asian & black, yellow & brown smart mouth references about his cake choice, LOL
Feel free to leave comment so when I finally make this blog into a book he can see how many people wished him a happy 3rd birthday.
