I have a cold, and it is a doozy on the sinuses.
Once I was sure that I would indeed be able to breathe for the day, I went to the gym to do a Body Attack class. Yay for exercise!
I then came home and we all got ready to go to the zoo. This included changing Miss Thing out of her pajamas and into some proper clothing. Just before I put on her shoes and socks I leaned over her and asked her if she knew what day it was.
She looked at me like I was crazy.
Then I told her that it is Mama's birthday.
She responded with a song.
It was awesome, unasked for, and the best birthday present from a little one. Here is a re-enactment:
Excellent, yes? Especially the "and many more" section.
The zoo was excellent, full of Miss Thing running throughout the place. Pei Wei was nice for lunch. The afternoon was relaxing and I spoke with some family.
Then we had dinner.
It was best summed up by Rocket Man:
"One day we'll laugh about that dinner."
I'll just leave it at that.
