Another Birthday for RM

After you hit the 40th birthday mark- you don't keep track of your age. That's the case with RM. He thought he was two years older than his actual age until I reminded him of his real age- he seemed relieved.

It doesn't matter- he's got more energy than most men in their 20s!

We celebrated RM's birthday several weeks ago. It was RM's first birthday since Moe was born that he was not there. But he mailed RM this birthday card:

RM read the front of the card & said, "Wow, this seems like a thoughtful card." Until he opened the card....

... it took a few moments for RM to realize it wasn't one of those tear jerker Hallmark sentimental cards and then he burst our laughing.

Moe wrote this note inside the card:

Hey Dad,

This is the 1st b-day where I'm not spending it with you.
I wish I could be there to celebrate (going out to eat)
with you & Mom.

- Love you forever,

Yup, we are lucky to have a thoughtful young man as our son.

RM & I don't give gifts to each other for our birthdays, instead we make it into a weekend of pampering. I guess that's why BOTH of us look forward to our birthdays.

Here's what we did:

- Lunch at Cheesecake Factory
- Shopping at the mall
- Dessert at our favorite bakery
- Couples Massage
- Eating really good food all weekend long

And when we were home, RM watch unlimited guilt free football with not a peep from me of how bored I was. (I love football, but I don't need to watch it all day)

I've celebrated over two decades of birthdays with RM and each one has been special and memorable.

RM deserves to have a weekend of pampering and I get to reap the benefits too!

I love the idea of not doing gifts and spending the weekend of pampering!!! I think we might have to do that!
