Tempus Fugit

Another birthday?!!!

I think having children makes you much more aware of the passage of time. I was almost blissfully unaware of the days going by before Noodlebug was born. I haven't even really cared about celebrating a birthday since my 30th when I got engaged and went to Disneyland. Now, I have never been MORE aware of time. Every day I see my little one grow and change and it fills me with...panic!!! Where is the time going? I feel like I'm going to turn around and he will be heading off to college. I know this sounds a little neurotic but hey...I'm a little neurotic.

We just had a lovely first birthday for Noodlebug and you know what? First birthdays are a lot more fun than 34th birthdays. My birthday falls on Memorial Day this year and I would like to just pretend that this weekend is extended bonding time with my family and completely ignore my birthday altogether. I don't need any gifts. Except maybe the gift of time. (and some birthday cards because I LOVE getting cards in the mail!)

I hope you all have a lovely Memorial Day weekend. Spend lots of quality TIME with your family and friends and remember those people who have given their time to serve our country.
