Another Birthday!

March is a big birthday month for me – it starts off with my favorite little boy in the whole world, Rory and ends with my favorite old fart, my dad.  Today is my dad’s birthday and I gave some hints about what his card was going to be this year.  I also said he was turning 66.  He is not, he is turning 65 today.  I always figure out how old people in relation to my age, but the problem is, I frequently forget how old I am.  I thought I was 36 the day I wrote that and I am not.  I am 35.  Last week I thought I was 28 – it’s a crap shoot if you ever ask me how old I am.

I called my dad this morning to wish him a happy birthday and to make sure he got his card.  Oh yes, he got it and he said he laughed until he had tears.  Mission accomplished.  I now present to you Grandpa’s Birthday Card 2.0.There was some concern, namely from my mom, about Kamryn crying during the process of making this card.  The reason she was crying was because she was having a really hard time holding up only her middle finger.  She points at stuff all the time with her “Tall Man”, but asking her to do it was apparently harder than I realized.  She kept asking why she couldn’t use her index finger instead and I told her that if she holds up her middle finger it means that Grandpa is super#1.  I really tried to get Rory to do it too, but he wasn’t even close.  That’s OK because he’ll most likely have to be my assistant next year since Kamryn is catching on to my shenanigans.

Happy Birthday Old Man!

Grandpa’s Card

I started the process of making my dad’s birthday card this week.  The idea came to me in a vision of awesomeness.  I immediately knew it was perfect and may surpass last year’s card.

I really don’t want to keep you all in suspense, but my dad’s birthday isn’t until the 26th.  I’m not sure if my dad reads my blog.  He may be too afraid of it tarnishing the “Daughter Dearest” image he has of me.  On the off chance he is reading this, I have to hold off a couple of weeks before I can do the final reveal.

I’ll give you a few teasers, though:

  • It is impossible for me to even think about it without smiling.
  • It involves a photo.
  • I made Kamryn cry during the process.
  • I was also crying, but my tears were from laughing so hard that I almost peed my pants.

All will be revealed on March 26th when the Old Fart turns 66!

*UPDATE*  My dad is turning 65!  My dad is 30 years older than I am and I thought I was 36 for some reason.  I can’t be the only one that doesn’t know how old they are.
