Raise Your Hand If You Turn 31 Today

Yep, you guessed it!

The person who kills me at MarioKart and also fathered my children has a birthday.

He is the best dad in the world for Jackson...teaching him to throw stuff for hours at a time into any body of water, giving tips about Legos, and showing him daily that loving selflessly is God's best.

He is a great dad for Lilly...throwing her into the air far higher than legally acceptable, braiding her hair when I'm out of town (that is serious points, folks), and modeling both strength and compassion in her life.

And for me...he is the best. I completely appreciate someone who never hesitates to embarrass himself right along with me, and even take the shame up a notch. He loves me for who I am, even when that is pretty terrible (that is even more points than hair-braiding).

I meant for this to be much more heartfelt and sentimental, but I'm suffering from a case of Death combined with Wizard-of-Oz birthday planning procrastination/excitement.

More later from the Sick House/Emerald City...

Tell Brad "Happy Birthday" for me. I mailed a card, but as often happens with me, it will be late.

Maybe you should switch to a wedding pic instead of the prom pic--just a thought!! Donna

Happy Birthday, Brad, you are a cool dad.
