August twelfth has always been and always will be the most important day of the year.
Of course, as much as I'd rather have spent the entire day doing FUN, I got to have a hearing at which I argued that my daughter's orthodontia IS medically necessary. And I got to get forms for the kids' schools picked up, filled out, and delivered.
But I also got birthday wings for dinner!
And I enjoyed time with my family
And EJ dressed up for my birthday dinner
And despite things that may have been less than pleasant, I had a great birthday, enjoying spending time with my kids.
