Glutton

As a kid, birthdays were not that big of a deal. It probably had to do with the fact that my brother, my sister and myself were born within 8 days of each other (+2 years, + 7 years.) There was also an aunt, uncle and cousin thrown in April just for good measure.

With all that going on, there wasn't a lot of personal attention on your special day. How I managed to marry a guy whose birthday is the day after mine is a mystery. Plus his dad's birthday, and his brother's (40 this year!) all in the latter part of the month.

So mid-April through the end is a never ending whirlwind of dinners, lunches, cakes, cupcakes, ice cream and even donuts. To top all this off, the big bang this year is a bachlorette party Saturday night.

And what follows April? Swim suit season. Arrrgh!

  3. Unless you are actually planning to swim I wouldn't worry about it: get a Kaftan and relax.

  6. Holy crap, I'm right with you there, only my overloaded month is July. My dad and I have the same birthday. My sister and both grandfathers were also in July. One grandfather's birthday is the day after mine.

    Then, I married a guy whose birthday is two days after mine. What the frick is wrong with us? Do we ask for this trouble?

  8. What the? Why would you marry a guy whose Bday is right after yours? Seriously that's like page one in the Rules.

    I am suspicious of all of your family being born around the same time...sounds a little too clonish for comfort.

  10. It might be a little uncomfortable having all those women jumping out of cakes around so much family.
