Last night about 11 or so I decided I was a bit hungry. Jeff and I had gone out with some friends and I couldn't bring myself to eat. We brought home most of my dinner. I began thinking about that box in the refrigerator marked "MOM'S! TOUCH AND YOU WILL DIE!"

I got out of bed, turned on the hall light and walked right into a gaggle of giggling geese and a living room, dining room and kitchen filled with pink and black balloons and completely covered with pink streamers.

The giggles suddenly turned to screeches.


You see today is the 2nd anniversary of my 29th birthday. The kids were cleaning the house and blowing up balloons for me.

"How sweet", I thought as I grabbed a rib or two and went back into my bedroom. I drifted away to dreamland thinking how lucky I am to have such wonderful, caring kids.

This morning I got up to find a crystal vase of beautiful roses and smiling faces wishing me a wonderful birthday. "Awwwww", I thought again as I grabbed my keys to get my morning habit underway. I had to get to Starbucks. I had to get coffee.

Down the stairs and into the garage I floated on the wishes of my darlings. I opened the door and saw it. My car was covered with paint. "Ok, breathe" was running through my mind. I forced the smile to stay on my face as the mischievous minions were beaming up at me. I scanned the car for tape or window paint on the paint of my car. None. Whew! Good kids.

Well, they were good kids until I noticed that the front seats were overflowing with balloons. It was at that moment I almost cracked. Balloon filled car means I can't get in which means I can't get to Starbucks which means I can't get my COFFEE!

"It was Karli's idea Mom."

"It was all Karli!"

"Mom, you can just push the balloons into the back seat."

In my decaffeinated state I hadn't thought of that. I could breathe again. I was going to be able to get my morning fix. I pushed as many balloons as I could into the back so that I could squeeze in.

I backed into the driveway, got out and had to get pictures. I had to get pictures of the love and devotion my babies have for their mommy. They are truly awesome and I can't imagine my life without them.

I drove to Starbucks proudly displaying the love of my kids.

I'm one very lucky mom.

Bipolar Diva, indeed! Ok, kids. Next time, make sure you have Mommy's Starbucks available for her so she doesn't need to drive the car, especially if you plan to fill it with anything.

I could totally work for this Diva.

You must be doing something right to be worthy of all that love and devotion! Happy 29th Birthday Anniversary!

Thank you! You should see it in here now, I can't even count the balloons and there are little ones running EVERYWHERE! It's pretty cool :)

So sweet! See you are doing a lot of these right apparently!

Just imagine what might have been lurking in your car had I been in the neighborhood! But I WOULD have had some coffee for you!

Clearly your kids rock. Happy twenty ninth anniversary! And happy mother's day while I'm at it!

Weird connection moment: you have the same birthday as my friend from Boston.

Thank you everyone! And today was a great day as well........I passed my motorcycle test and finally, after riding for almost 5 years, I'm legal!

Cute! I mean, now that I know you got your Starbucks it's cute. Otherwise I would have felt like weeping.

Aw, how sweet they are and how lucky you are! Happy belated birthday.

Ask my dad all about balloons in the car! It's a favorite of me and my mom :)
