I've decided that birthdays and holidays are definitely better when you have kids. I got great presents today. But the best moment was when my monkeys said "Happy Birthday Mama!" and then gave me big birthday hugs and kisses. I didn't even mind that they were smearing my face with their germy little snotty noses. (I am the only non-sick person in our house). And if I end up with a birthday cold...ah, who cares!
