Wow...12 Already.

Today is Julien's 12th Birthday.
I took the day off so that I could basically be at his beck and call and do whatever his little heart desired.
He reminded me of that about 27 times while he waited for me to pick out a new lipstick at Sephora and I felt the need to remind him that 24 hours of unmedicated labor, followed by a C-Section that produced an almost nine pound baby deserved basically whatever I wanted and he should just be happy that it was just a new lipstick that I was picking out.
Other than that one minor little detour, the day was all his and I enjoyed each and every minute with him.
Some of you will remember that this is something that I do every year, but unlike last year, there were no additions to our family.
Don't get me wrong.
He tried - desperately, but I stood firm.
There was absolutely no way that I was paying for a rodent.
Zero, Zilch, Nada.
Not going to happen.
So, that sweet little beady eyed rat is still at PetSmart...unless of course he went to visit with one of the snakes a few cages down, his soul.
After a wonderful day, we picked Addie up from school and headed home to get ready for dinner....and picture time:
He is oh so careful with her on the steps...
but once they make it to soft ground, it's WWE Smackdown time.
