3Random facts

1When I was in 5th grade I had planned and rehearsed Hero by Mariah Carey to sing it for the D.A.R.E talent show with Ashley Roades... lets just say nerves set in. I was on the stage for about45 seconds before I ran off with my face in my hands crying. I still remember all the words though.

2Up until about a year ago my actual birth date was debatable. For all of my life I celebrated my birthday on July 22. but when I went to get my license the birth certificate that we brought said that my birthday was July 23... my mom claimed it was a typo... I accused her of having too many children that she couldn't even remember her 10th child's birthday. There was a little bit of a scene in the DMV when i started crying and telling my mother that i had been living a lie... saying things like "If my birthday was really July 23 I'm not even a Cancer anymore." My mother assured me that it was the July 22nd and that it was just typo on this copy. I wanted to believe her so bad... in my heart of hearts I knew my birthday really was July 22nd.... so I went right on celebrating my birthday on the 22nd. Even though I had July 23rd on my license, I believed in my mother's words... with blind faith. UNTIL, last year... I came across what I thought could possibly have been the original birth certificate and brought it in to right this wrong when i went to get my new FLA drivers license. So I proudly brought the new license AND the birth certificate home to show John the proof that indeed, I was born on my REAL birthday July 22nd.

3Turns out the birth certificate was not the original. The original was lost... so I guess my birthday is still debatable.

now i am going to tag...

  1. I loved reading that. I am the same way about my kids. That is so funny about your birth certificate. Goldie is so cute! Such a pretty baby.

  2. So as your visiting teacher I am really confused as to which day I should bring a birthday gift over. I guess if I forget on July 22nd then I can claim ignorance if I show up the next day...

  3. ok i did not know that birthday trauma.. hilarious. also dying over mariah carey's hero... i can picture it! so fun to see you girls last night.. thanks again! xoxox

  4. The birthdate story is cracking me up! So, the mystery lives on?!?

  5. I love the debatable birthday story. I have heard it before but it still draws me in- I find it so funny. After having only 2 kids I can already see how it could be easy to switch up the actual birth day by your 10th kid... not that I doubt your mom or anything :)

  9. That was fun to read, your little girl is to die for cute! And her name Goldie makes her even cuter!
