I forgot the baby's birthday! Really I forgot that sweet little #5 was turning 2 today. What a terrible reminder of how I fall short. It was 10:00a.m. before I remembered Greta's birthday. I guess the great thing about her turning 2 is that she probably could care less. My, how life changes. With sweet baby #1 she had 3 parties and plans were made weeks in advance. Well now these girls have a mentally overloaded mom who may forget their birthday altogether!
The one comfort I have in forgetting is that this sweet baby #5 has received what the other children did not. More patience, cuddles and affection. Since I was so busy with little ones previously or work I didn't get to just snuggle as much as my babies wanted. Little Gretta has received a lot of time with Mom, love and hugs. As I get older my hot temper is mellowing and my hyperactive ways are subsiding slightly. So fortunately for Gretta she has gotten a calmer more patient mother. Maybe this makes me feel slightly better for forgetting her birthday!
