Darn it! I'm not a fan of the day, personally. Oh sure, it's nice to be spoiled with breakfast in bed, and maybe a present or two (one store bought by Dear Hubby, one handmade by the boys), but it usually puts me in a melancholy mood.
I think it's because my kids are growing up (ages 10.5, 8.5 and 4) and that there'll be no more babies. Ironically, I don't think about the whole 'kids are getting older' (and therefore so must I) on their birthdays. Then again, there's usually a chocolate cake on their birthday and we all know that chocolate will cure most of whatever ails you. ;-)
Maybe I'll start a new tradition in my household. Instead of breakfast, I want chocolate cake. In bed.
