There he is, the man of the hour! My main squeeze. Doesn't he look wise? This morning I woke him with a kiss and pointed out a gray hair. He's lucky to have me. The girls presented him with the gifts they'd selected for him off his 12-page Amazon.com wishlist. Kate picked out the cards from both her and Sarah. The one from Kate has a beautiful fairy princess on it and talks about how glamorous the card's recipient is. She saw it and thought of her Daddy immediately. Then she picked out gift bags that play music. She played the gift bags over and over until I managed to wrench them free of her grasp and hide them.
We took the day off together to celebrate the anniversary of his birth. We took those kids we made together to daycare and headed out for some kid-free fun. Jeremiah wanted to see Iron Man which was fine, I wanted to see it too, but we really needed to enjoy at least some of the beautiful day outside. So, we biked to Atlantic Station and saw the movie there. We left early, stopped at the Flying Biscuit for breakfast on the way, and took a leisurely ride through town and Piedmont Park. When we left the movie it was about 3PM, and hot as Georgia asphalt. I know this, because we were on Georgia asphalt. Still, it was a lot of fun.
Later, while Jeremiah was grilling his own birthday meal, I set up the gift I built for him with my very own hands (and Steve's tools and...actually, a fair amount of help from Steve on those folding legs. But only because I am not to be trusted with a jigsaw). Here it is! It's a fabulous new grill table. Have grill table will travel - yes, it folds up and can be carried around by that handle you see there on the front. It's pure cedar! No additives. Yesterday it received a final sanding and was oiled. He seems pretty happy with it but I can tell he wishes I'd gotten him a gift card for iTunes.
Happy Birthday my love! I'm so very glad you were born.
