Birthday Buddies

We call these two the birthday buddies. The oldest and youngest born on the same day with 11 years that separate them. This headache happened because on Meagan's birthday two years ago I jumped out of bed to make breakfast for her. I didn't hear the alarm and was already 15 minutes late for the day. I literally jumped out of bed. That's not easy to do when you're 38 weeks pregnant. Then I felt a pop and a gush of water. Denial set in quickly. I told myself that I must have just wet my pants from the impossible leap out of bed. I admit it. When you're pregnant it's hard to be rational at times. The contractions started immediately. John was anxious to get me to the hospital but I had to do the girls' hair first. And the rest is history.

I teased Meagan when she asked about the plans for the birthday party(ies). Just one birthday dinner and party for the two. The theme this year will be Barney. Peter loves watching Barney, the purple dinosaur, [annoying, singing, purple dinosaur] When Meagan was 2 she loved Barney too so I didn't think she would mind. I was wrong.

That's a great story! I remember that day. So happy birthday to your 2 October cuties! Was Meagan's favorite b-day present the one we got her? :-)
