That’s Erin on my mother’s lap

My daughter’s birthday is today.

February 20th, 1976 was the best and not quite worst, but at least challenging, day of my life. I mean, come on, 21 hours of labor only to end up having a caesarian section isn’t a walk in the park by anyone’s definition. But Erin is the part of my life about which I am most proud, hands down, every day of the week. So let’s celebrate birthdays with some birthday humor, shall we?

Signs you are getting older: you have to scroll down a lot before finding your birth year for an online form.

What did George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Christopher Columbus all have in common? They were all born on holidays.

The old lady was being interviewed by reporters on the occasion of her 110th birthday. “What do you think is the reason for your long life?” one reported asked. ” She replied, “I suppose it’s because I was born such a long time ago.”

*****

Dear Google, Happy Birthday. You just turned 18  years old and you know so much. Thank you for helping me with my homework. Sincerely, Me.

I guess the worst part about being a birthday cake is when you’re set on fire, and then eaten by the hero who saved you.

Said by the young adult, “My mom’s favorite part of my birthday is describing my birth in detail to an 18-year old waitress who is just there to take our drink order.”

Hopefully I was never guilty of that! Happy Birthday Erin Green!
