< Upheaval: And a bottle of rum!

And a bottle of rum!

**A little something to read while you wait on the edge of your seats for news! Disclaimer: this was written in the wee morning hours after not-much-sleep-at-all.**

Most people, if given the choice, would like to have a cool birthday. It is cool to have a birthday on a holiday, sometimes. It is also cool to have a birthday with sequential numbers, or with rhyming numbers like "seven" and "eleven." A really cool birthday would have been 05/05/05 because it is 1) on Cinco de Mayo and 2) the numbers are really easy to remember!

I am really excited that today is going to be Dillon's birthday. He is late enough in September that he will be one of the oldest kids in his class, which is definitely an advantage for boys. He also doesn't share a birthday with any immediate family members, which makes for sometimes-uncool joint birthday celebrations. Finally, and most importantly, the numbers add up! Fourteen minus 9 is 5. OKAY! That is definitely cool.

I do have one regret though. Maybe next time, we will get pregnant about two weeks later. Or I will be more patient and choose to induce a little later.

BECAUSE THE COOLEST BIRTHDAY EVER WOULD HAVE BEEN SEPTEMBER 19TH! That is because September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day! In case you didn't know, TLPD is a very cool event that happens annually, where a lot of people (approximately 7 of us) go around talking like a pirate!

Talking like a pirate is fun, and Dillon is definitely going to get exposed next Monday. He will only be five days old, but I bet he can say "Arrr!"

I hope you will join in this celebration! Let's increase the number to 8! And, if you need suggestions for what to say on TLPD, check out this helpful list! And start practicing!
