Birthday Day.32.I am trying to make it the happiest birthday possible but today will be my first day back at work and this lump in my throat is stubborn.  I haven’t even left the house yet and already, I miss my girls
I am trying to channel all the b-day love and well-wishes I get today into working-mama strength. Lean on my people, you know?
I hate that today I don’t get to be there when Hazel wakes up from her nap or when we give Fee smushed bananas, but all I have to do is make it to 5:00.
And then,we get to celebrate!The 4 of us.  A birthday cake (or whatever confection Simon brings home).  And a candle  (definitely a candle.)Hazel will sing.  So will Simon.  Felix might coo.
and I will try my hardest to count the moments, not minutes, we get to share together…
This isn’t easy.But it’s life.
Alright birthday…let’s do this thing!
