I'm writing this because I have to. Because I signed up for this challenge and gosh darnit, I'm going to stick with it. But I really am not feeling it today. It's rainy, I've got a birthday party to set up, errands to run, and a coughing baby to hold.
All of this while trying to get over the fact that 52 weeks and 9 minutes ago I held my son for the first time.
And Meredith Grey going into labor exactly 52 weeks after I did?!?! I'm still drinking water from all the dehydrating tears I shed last night.
I can't take it. Happy and sad is the way of this birthday. Happy and sad.
I was hard pressed to find an embarrassing moment. One came to mind, but I couldn't use it because it involves poop and I am not quite ready to become "the poop girl." Then there are a few with my dad- like when I caught him looking for short British style shorts in the women's department of Old Navy or when he gave me contraceptive advice for my impending trip to France (because, you know, "everyone does it.") He then tried to guess how many people I had rendezvoused with already, and guessed more than the actual amount. Not embarrassing at all.
But the biggest that comes to mind is a New Year's night gone wrong.
Just imagine. Two kids having fun in a bedroom. A bedroom which just happens to be at a friend's house, but more specifically, a friend's mother's house. The door opens and in the light stands a woman- a woman who the girl has never met before and is clearly not in a position to meet now. The door closes, the night continues rather uncomfortably, and morning comes. Said girl did not crawl out of house and into a taxi (for some unknown reason) and ends up at the breakfast table, officially meeting mother (for now the second time) over pancakes. Add in a bunch of friends who know the story and mention it enough to make it awkward for all involved parties, and yes, we truly have embarrassing.
Happy Friday everyone and see you tomorrow, if I can crawl out from under my rock by then.

And Jenni's totally rocks, in that "I'm laughing uncomfortably for your pain" kind of way.**
