Finer Things Friday: They Know Me Well


My birthday is Sunday.  Last night at the supper table, my husband innocently asked (in a get-the-kids-all-riled-up kind of innocent) “Mommy, what do you want to do for your birthd…?”

Interrupted by an excited six-year-old: “She’s gonna sleep!”

After a laugh (because that’s exactly what I plan to do) hubby continued.  “Four days…” (until mommy’s birthday)

Interrupted again.

Six-year-old:  “Yep.  Mommy’s gonna sleep for four days!”

Not quite, but don’t call me on Sunday.  I’ll be sleeping.  😉

It’s a Finer Thing to have a family that knows me so well.  Mama doesn’t need a fancy restaurant dinner, jewelry or flowers.  Just give me some sticky hugs and a 4-day nap and I’m good to go.
