Thirty-eight years ago, I was born with a baby scowl on my baby face.
But then, you would be scowly too if you were born as a floating head.
Seriously, don’t I look like the most jaded baby ever?
A small baby I was not. But I worked the one piece knit outfit like nobody’s business.
I was baby #4 , and girl #2, but with 10 years separating myself from my older sister, I was the obvious recipient for all her sewing projects. Oh, and with five kids, my mom was super mom and my dad was the hairdresser. Proof?
It’s the big 38 this year, and by big I mean old. I’m okay with it – mostly because I’m too busy amusing my children to really harp on the number.
But when it’s said and done, I do believe that NOTHING says a birthday post like the old school, double head shot.
Happy Birthday to me, and all the July babies out there!!

I recently discovered this great jewellery designer thanks to Twitter – Punky Jane Jewellery. She specializes in hand crafted and personalized jewellery, so I checked out her website and discovered that she does these great mommy necklaces. I’ve wanted one for a long time and I really liked what I saw in her Etsy shop, so I went ahead and bought myself one. I just received it today, and I’m so glad I went with PunkyJane. I LOVE IT. Its called the Sweet Stack of handstamped and personalized dics necklace, and I personalized it with my children’s names. Here’s a pic (please note my AMAZING styling abilities):
I ordered the necklace with the three discs, in the brushed finish with the 20″ sterling silver chain. As you can see, I have my son’s name on the largest disc, my daughter’s name on the middle disc, and I chose to inscribe “MY BABIES” on the smallest. I adore it!
I also want to thank Sandy for donating a Gift Certificate to my upcoming Holy Crap I’m Old Birthday Giveaway!! to be posted on Wednesday. Thanks Sandy!!
