The Forgotten Birthday

When I was pregnant with Chloe and found out that her due date was March 1st, Jason said, "Well there goes my birthday."

And when I was pregnant with Stella and we found out that her due date was February 15th, Jason said, "We'll never celebrate my birthday again." 

It shakes out like this:
Stella's Birthday- February 10
Jason's Birthday- February 21
Chloe's Birthday-March 9

For me, the cluster of birthdays has made my life a lot easier, for one reason alone--

I get to leave up the birthday decorations for one whole month, with a valid (okay, it's really  and totally inexcusable) reason. 

If you know me, I like to procrastinate about taking down decorations. 

You don't even want to know how long I kept up our Christmas tree. 

See, look at this picture. I didn't forget his birthday at all. I would even like to say that I decorated for his special day. Even if it was first intended for Stella. Look at all of her his cards!

I let the girls pick out cards for him this year. Stella picked out Belle. And apparently Jason is her "granddaughter".

And Chloe picked out a Tinkerbell card for her "best girl friend". 

I chose one that talks about peeing your pants. Something. is. wrong. with. me.

All in all, I think he had a great birthday. Even with his girly cards and leftover decorations. 

Eventually we left the fairy princesses behind and celebrated with a proper birthday dinner. We had so much fun... 

 He wouldn't let us sing Happy Birthday so I embarrassed him the best way I know how. 

With photographic proof of my dorkiness.

Jason, your birthday is not forgotten. You are the best husband a girl could ask for and I'm more than happy to celebrate birthday, after birthday, after birthday, after birthday, with you.

Even if I do weird things to embarrass you.

Even if I use leftover decorations and fairy princess cards.

Even if I post your birthday post, one day late.

I love you.

Happy Birthday (yesterday)!
