Two years ago today - and six weeks early - the Amazing Muffins came into the world. It was a scary day, a traumatic day, but it will always be the day that forever changed my life in the best possible way. They were tiny, squawking, beautiful and perfect little beings who were whisked away from me shortly after delivery, and I didn't get to see them until they were a few hours old.
The whirlwind surrounding their arrival sneaks up on me from time to time, as it did tonight while I kissed my sweet blessings goodnight, but I will forever be grateful for my miracles.
To celebrate, J took the day off and we enjoyed our time together as a family. The day started off with a visit to our favorite local breakfast place, where the waitstaff sang Happy Birthday to the Muffins as they delivered the kids' pancake, complete with two birthday candles (which the kidlets blew out like pros). Then, we brought the Muffins here and they had a blast exploring and playing and running around like crazy. After wooing them out of the museum with balloons, we treated the big 2 year-olds to ice cream at our favorite ice cream place and then it was off to home to have a rest. We took a walk later in the afternoon and then had a quiet night at home. It was a perfect day.
Happy Birthday, my darlings.
