Has Spring Sprung?

March and April are busy birthday months around here. It's almost like a non-stop party. M's birthday falls on Easter this year but we're celebrating this coming Sunday. She can't wait. The fact that her party is four days away and she's also 'Star of the Week' have her high on life.

My birthday is the day after Easter. (Are you writing this down?) Lori's birthday comes pretty quickly after mine.

H will be TWO in April (which is the same day as our anniversary). TWO!?!? I can't believe it either. But this year, I am way more on top of the ball. I figured out when his party will be and tonight I spent some time working on his birthday shirt.

April 2007.
Last year Lori and I teamed up and made H his birthday shirt and then I had this brilliant idea that we could make millions selling birthday shirts to others. (Think of all the cool business names we could come up with being mom and stepmom friends/partners.) Well we never sold a one. Today I pulled out all the samples we made up last year. Any takers?

I do truly believe this was a good idea and one that could have (or maybe will someday) take off. I just think that both of our plates at the time were heapingly full and making/selling toddler t-shirts wasn't that high on the list. Perhaps this will be my next calling?

By the way, those who are following the monthly menus, my March menu is ready to go over at 'Menus by the Month'. This is also your chance to give me your feedback and recipes. I need quick, easy, healthy, picky eater friendly yet ok for my gourmet husband, recipes for dinner.

And don't forget the contest. I really love contests. So enter. You have three weeks left. Get a move on.

Last but certainly not least, we played outside today. Like went outside with less than three layers. No boots, hats, gloves or winter parkas. I do not remember the last time this happened. T and M were elated when I said they didn't have to wear their winter coats. And H, he was just beside himself with smiles taking a walk. Spring and summer, here we come.

Are you kidding??? I would love one of those t-shirts! As a matter of fact - I may want 2! One for Josh turning 2 and one for Zach turning 3! You need to try to sell them again - I would think they'd be a hit! They're darling!!!

I think the tees are way fun- I know lots of folks who would buy some for their wee ones.

And yes! It is finally starting to thaw! All day yesterday was sunny, and I kept going outside just to stand with my face pointed toward the sun.

Great idea! Maybe adults would like them, too, if they had years like 29, 39, etc. and they were really octagenarians!

Ooohhh, good thought, Deb! Every year on her birthday, my mother-in-law says that she's turning 21. It would be so funny to get her a "21" shirt as a birthday gift! I wouldn't mind a "40" one for The Hubs when he rolls over that hill next year, either! :)
