As I promised in my previous post I am going to give you guys a glimpse of what I did for my 26th birthday. Oh gosh 26 already, time really flies when you have kids right, or it just passes by as fast to those who do not have kids.
Wonders of the world, anyways so yeah the first thing I did was wake up twice in the middle of the night to feed my twins because they still wake up at least once and then fall back to sleep. Yes, I did not have the privilege of sleeping through the night without any interruptions, why you might ask well :
A. My twins did not get the memo that it was mommy’s birthday.
B.I am a mother therefor I should know better than to assume I will have any rest or think the imaginable of ….
Just because it is my birthday does not mean miracles will happen. Even though they could. But it didn’t so let’s move on.
After the twins woke up and I put them back to sleep, I myself went to sleep while my hubby went to work pretty early. At around 7am he came back to the house and went to my room and gave me this beautiful gift. I was half asleep so I just kissed him and said thank you and went back to sleep, I didn’t even realized when he went back to work.
I woke up around 9am because my three kids decided to wake me up. My beautiful 5year old wished me a happy birthday, she just looked so cute sleepy and saying it. I pretended the twins said happy birthday to their momma and I gave them a kiss and a hug just like I did to Jamely( my 5year old).
I received a lot of phone calls from family and text messages from friends wishing me a happy birthday so I felt the love people, I was feeling the love. I was in desperate need of going to the salon to do my hair, my eye brows and of course you can’t forget my pedi and mani(pedicure and manicure). So since my mom was going to come back home from running her errands early I waited for her so she can take care of the kids. At first she looked at me like if I was cray cray but then I guess she remembered it was my birthday so she said fine, ha! what a birthday can do to people! Love my mom.
This is me getting my mani and pedi with my Rihanna hair wrap, which in my country(Dominican Republic) we call it TUBI. Whoop Whoop, Tubi on and don’t care, that’s how birthday girls do it…or just ME.
Let me tell you that I left my house at around 11am and got home almost at 3pm, yes my mother was going to kill me! I sound like a baby but I felt like I took advantage of her. In my defense it wasn’t me it was the women at the salon taking her sweet time like is nobody’s birthday and nobody’s mother is taking care of nobody’s kids and that nobody is again ME.
When I got home I found a very sweet and lovely surprise from my hubby. I just loved it and I love him. Here is what I found…
edible arrangements! I love it, the two other gifts were from my sisters. My little sister got me clothes and my older sister got me make up….can not wait to try this out and I will be posting a review on it, so be sure to look out for that.
I spent the rest of the afternoon with my children, sisters, mother and grandmother at home, having a chill day. My twins loved the balloons that came with the edible arrangements that I had to give it to them so they can play. By the way I love balloons if you only get me balloons for my birthday I will be happy and not even complain seriously, unless you are my hubby.
In the evening I wanted to go out to eat with the hubby and at first my mother said she was too tired from taking care of the kids all day that she will not take care of them at night. I was a little upset because hello I am the birthday girl here and I really wanted to go out and eat. Then my amazing mother said yes, It is my birthday and I can go out if
I my mother wants too. Thank you to my sisters as well because they also helped with the kids. Here are some pics of us at our favorite restaurant…We ate Pad Thai a traditional Thai dish and it was delicious, We also ordered hand rolls and those were amazing.
