|Cupcakes from Ashley's Pastry Shop|
I have done well to not do embarrassing "mom" stuff today like post on her Facebook wall or send attention grabbing packages to school. Sure, I am posting this but unless you know me personally I am just a stranger talking about her kids and I am fairly certain that since I am not popular with the Tumblr set it is a safe bet that this is not going to go viral among her friend's and cause the kind of mortification that seems to only really happen when you are a teenager and everything matters...even if it doesn't.
She didn't want anything really, and I know she meant that. It takes one a long while to realize all the strange and wonderful reasons that your parents and family want to make all over you on your birthday. I love birthdays! For most of her last 15, it has meant a dinner of her choosing and cake and whatnot. I am okay with low-key and picked up these beautiful cupcakes because low-key doesn't have to me nothing at all.
So, here's to another year! Happy Birthday (embarrassing nickname that Mom can't stop calling you deleted)!
