I really try to make each birthday special - make a cake, blow up balloons, have presents stacked in a corner for when they wake up, make a birthday shirt (for the children) etc. When my birthday rolls around it's usually just another day. BUT this year hubby surprised me and baked me a cake ALL BY HIMSELF! It was wonderful!
The girls behaved completely for the entire day, even napping at the same and letting me put my feet up. BLISS!
