Today's post is being written by Simon, not Grace because...today is her birthday. Part of her birthday present is getting to take some time to herself which means no blogging and only light kid duty (well as light as it can be around here). I am sure if you were to take to your social medium of choice to join me in wishing her happy birthday she would love it.
I tried to enlist the kids' help as well but as you can see from take #15:
...there must have been a miscommunication somewhere.
I'll spare you the whisper video and the one where they just yell (more).
As Grace documented here, her birthday 5 years ago was also the day we were engaged, which means two things:
1. I am always reminded today of how lucky I am she said yes
2. It set the birthday present standards bar pretty high
In terms of number one-I really am lucky that
30 years a few decades some years ago Grace was born and fate decided to bring us together. As the loyal readers know Grace is funny, witty and a dedicated mom (understatement of the year). What some of you know and many may not is that real life Grace blows blog Grace out of the water.
Regarding number two--tune in tomorrow where (maybe) you can find out how she spent her day.
Please join me, Julia, Bash, and Theo in sing-yelling...."HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you...."
