Happy Birthday?
This post has semi baby-related content, so if you don't feel like reading that type of stuff, then leave now...


I've never been big on birthdays - mine, or anyone else's. I mean, when you get down to it, EVERYBODY has one, so what makes mine or yours so special? If you're friend of mine, then sure, I'm glad you were born, so your being here is a reason for celebration, but if we're such tight friends, how about we celebrate the day we met? A day we shared a unique or memorable experience? You know?

HOWEVER...I'll tell you one birthday I think I'll make it a habit to recognize EVERY year; That's right - my son's birthday!

Why? Well, that's going to be a special day in MY life. A day MY life will be changed. I'm not sure how I'll personally celebrate his birthday every year, though. Probably not with a huge party. Something a bit more private and introspective.

I'll keep you posted.

By the way...Mrs. Mau and I have chosen a name for the manchild. It's on the baby website, which is the same as the wedding website, if you had that web address.

If you don't have that address, and would like to keep tabs, then contact me at mau (at), and I'll be glad to share that info with you. I'm not really a fan of putting my personal information out on the Interweb for all to see, but anyone who's friendly enough to ask for it, is probably friend enough to know it.

Know What I'm Sayin'??

Hope all is well with you and yours.

I hear you. My son's birthday is the only birthday that I do not have to be reminded of, aside from my own. He hits the big 5 in April.
