Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

They don't call me Princess for nothin'

Standing on top of the slide, physically underlining each syllable with a stomp of my foot, "It's my birthday and I can do whatever I want!" They had to hear it sometime, my parents. What did they mean, why did I push my sister off the top of the slide? I think I was 6.

Yesterday, on my 31st birthday, my dad gave me permission to bark at anyone I want. Miss Kitty said I could be a diva anytime I needed to be. My mom relinquished her throne and title, warning me that it's not easy being Queen. My husband rubbed my feet, and Monsoon saved me a pancake with sprinkles.

Now that I'm allowed to do whatever I want, it doesn't seem quite as necessary.

Takes all the fun out of it when you're allowed to misbehave doesn't it?!

Happy Birthday to you. You have to be a queen just for one day right????

I've never thought of if quite that way before! But it makes complete sense; half the fun is in "proving" that you can have/do what you want. Hope you had a wonderful day!

Yes, unfortunately it's true. It's only fun when it's against the rules. Happy Birthday Princess Queen!
