i woke up this birthday morning to a cool sunny day and pancakes. and two children. two years ago today there were no babies but there was a plate full of strangely awful cornflake covered french toast. we have never been back to that diner. i’ll take pancakes at home with the three boys anyday. tonight omar and i are going to baleen, a restaurant on the bay. a gracious and generous friend gave us a gift certificate and i’ve been browsing their menu online. you can sure bet i am not ordering the iceberg wedge – i don’t care that it is “baby iceberg” and covered in roquefort. people, it’s a chunk of 13 dollar iceberg lettuce!
so here is to my first day being 28. let us hope it is full of happy kiddos, breezy skies, and a quiet birthday date.
