Confession: No…. as much as I wish I were talking about one of the Brothers Busch – but no…… I am the one who deserves a good switchin! Some kids who grew up in the South know about these switches…. and therefore, can only understand how bad I screwed up.
I forgot my Mom’s Birthday…….AGAIN! Despite the fact she was born on July 2nd – and has celebrated at least………. 30ish of her birthdays on July 2nd…. for some unexplainable reason I have it stuck in my mind that she was born on July 3rd.
Mind you – I have done this many times…. I arranged for some amazing flowers to arrive fresh at her door – on July 3. I cannot explain why my brain can’t fix this… even with the help of technology – my brain told me it was the 3rd.
I don’t celebrate the birth of Baby Jesus on December 26th – I don’t write about what happens at the Daytona 500 on Monday. (ok, there are some exceptions) So why do I keep adding this one day to Mom’s birthday?
When I realized with horror that I had done it AGAIN – I immediately called…. and my Mom was just as “mom-like” as she’s always been. She’s knew I thought it was the 3rd and instead of getting mad she was enjoying that her celebration has been stretched to 48 hours.
So, a day late as usual – HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM…….
thanks – for being there along the journey!
