Melted Wax and Sprinkles

I wanted to keep with the theme of the Cocktail Divas blog entry this week so I deliberately didn't post an entry to it right away :P

But in all seriousness, I think everyone wants their birthday to be acknowledged we want to feel important to the ones who apparently care most about us. I can speak from first hand experience.... my folks haven't observed my birthday or were even in the country for 5 of the last birthdays I have had. It pissed me off really..... I didn't say anything to them about it until this year. Well lets just say it didn't go over very well.

They became very defensive and asked if I would like them to throw me a birthday party complete with party hats, balloons, clowns and pony rides. All I really wanted was for my folks to feel like I do about my kids. My crib midgets are ultra important to me...I couldn't dream of missing their birthdays and if I did we would celebrate short there after. I guess my folks forgot they have a phone.

So I do hear ya Dee, cards and a flaming cake from the kids woulda been good and Mr Cocktail Diva may have been asleep at the wheel ...."but"....I will say..... I think in our busy lives we have so many hats to wear on a daily basis that we also don't communicate with each other what it is we truly do desire to create happiness or memories.

Now saying I think you should throw me a big birthday bash complete with clowns and pony rides is definitely more than a bit much! But its okay to drop a hint or two isn't it? Otherwise we set our expectations up to be disappointed.

I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me.

Let Her Eat CAKE!!

So it has been 5 sleeps since the Colossal Birthday FAIL in my house and yes damn it...Mama is still bitter...Please don't tell me to drop it, or get over it...well you can, but I won't listen.

All I wanted was a bloody candle to blow out and my kids to sing Happy Birthday to me...Is that too much to ask? No fancy cake needed, a cupcake, muffin, hell even a Timbit would have done the trick. If you throw in a macaroni necklace and some toddler scribble on a home made card, I would be over the moon!

The whole point of a birthday for me is not the "getting" of things, it's the "making" of things, memories to be exact. So to see my 4 darling children sing me Happy Birthday is a great that I don't have this year.

Why you ask?...and even if you didn't...because my husband is insensitive and has no clue how important it is for me to feel a teeny bit special, even for just a few moments.

Now before you add all your ever so clever, "Oh here's yet another ungratefully wife, bitching about her husband" comments. I am very gratefully for my husband and I show him how grateful at least 3 times a week. Well that was until his COLOSSAL BIRTHDAY FAIL!

So it is my Professional opinion that my husband is a Giant JERKAPOTOMUS and that I , his ever so loving wife deserves an apology and some understanding. Understanding in the fact that just because he feels that a Birthday is "just another day", does not mean that I share this same feeling. And in this feelings trump his!
