My mom has always been lucky to get an "off day" at work on her birthday. Sunday was Veteran's Day and Monday was the observed holiday, which means my mom is off work on her birthday and getting paid. She turned 60 this year and she's proud to be a "Senior Citizen." I'm not so sure I will ever been proud of that day when I get there, but her reason is "classic mom." My mom is VERY frugal and we are finally getting a Publix, so her reason to be happy? On Wednesdays she will get a discount on her groceries. I love that woman.
After school, Lyssa and I ran to Sam's to order Lyssa's cake and to pick up one for my mom. And it was either Angry Birds or Hello Kitty. Since Angry Birds was chocolate, we went for the Hello Kitty.
My mom isn't into the spending money on birthdays type of thing, she would just rather spend time together. So we did and ate cupcakes and then had huge baked potatoes from Rick's Barbecue. My Lil Man is so funny eating cupcakes that I had to snap a few pictures of him. My mom is like me and not really into having her picture taken.
