Half Birthday

Today is my Half Birthday.  Yes, I am thirtysomething and I still celebrate my half birthday!  So, what?!  It all started many years ago on June 10, when I was very, very young, too young to really remember.  My mother did something that really upset me.  The only way she could cheer me up was to declare it was my half birthday.  She probably made me a cake or bought some ice cream or something else rather easy to appease a young child.  But wouldn’t you know it, I never, ever forgot it!  (parents let this be a warning, children are like elephants!)  And I’ve celebrated it ever since.  I don’t really do gifts or cake or a party.  But it’s nice to know that I’m still living and breathing after another 6 months.  And I think we should celebrate everyone’s half birthdays; life is hard, we all deserve a pat on the back a couple times a year!

Now, where’s my cake?!

  1. You know, I was just thinking that going forward, I want to celebrate your half birthday. (Seriously. Don’t ask. The brain works in mysterious ways.) Possibly because I found the birthday card I got you back in November and then lost in my knitting bag.

  2. sounds like an excuse for a party… Have a good One !!
    The only person I can think of who has 2 birthdays is the Queen, an official one, then her real one…. I don’t know why, I guess I should but….
    Happy Half Birthday anyway !

  3. I love this. Of course, I’m a little nutty over my own birthday, so I feel like everyone should celebrate theirs with as much gusto as I do. I’ve always felt so sorry for Christmas babies, so If I ever have kids born in December, I am DEFINITELY going to celebrate their half birthday!

    Happy, happy 1/2 Birthday!!
