They Say Its My Birthday…

14 Nov

Every year on November 14th at sometime during the day, whether I am in the same state or across the country my mom finds some way to sing me happy birthday Beatles Style “They Say Its Your Birthday” by the Beatles has become somewhat of a tradition for my family, as in we sing it for every birthday for everyone (even my pup Frankie). The tradition started when I was in 5th grade. The school bell had rang I was so excited to run home and get ready for my birthday dinner. I was one of the last kids out of the classroom that day, probably because I was busy chatting with some friends or my teacher, as I was known to do. When I finally walked out I was in for a big surprise. My mom was standing there with a huge crowd of at least 20 people (some kids from my class, so I had no idea who they were). She had a huge bouquet of balloons and then started sing “They Say Its Your Birthday….da nana nana na….” along with all of the other 20 kids she had gathered together. To think back on it now, how she got this group of kids to sing along to a Beatles song is beyond me, but I am sure glad she did. At the time I was a little embarrassed, but now at 25 yrs, I cherish that moment and will remember it always. I have an amazing mother who still makes me feel like the luckiest kid in 5th grade!

Thanks Mom for putting up with me for 25 years!!!
