time is ticking away

Today I found the most darling birthday shirts.

They only had two.

And it just so happened that of those two, one had a “1” and one had a “3”.

It was as if it was meant to be.

I mean next November, I will have a joint birthday party for a one-year old and a three-year old.

And there were the shirts.

With their applique crowns and sparkly jewels and perfect numbers staring at me.

And I picked them up.

Then I put them back.

Then I went back and picked them up again and marveled at their perfection.

I contemplated appropriate tutu and hair bow options.

Then I put them back.

I browsed a bit more.

Then I went back and picked them up.

Then I put them back.

And I left the store a little sad and dejected.

Because I only have 11 months to decide what my children will wear to their birthday party.

  3. And when they’re old enough, they’ll start planning their next birthdays 364 days in advance. Think ahead! It’s a good skill to use early and often.
