Ok turning 40 sucks... a LOT... BUUUUT my lil SN (special needs) son made is just wonderful. DH bought a small cake that was cut in to 4 sections so each of us could have the kind we liked. DH got the German chocolate cake, I got the piece with the chocolate cake and chocolate frosting and SN son got the white cake with white frosting. When DH brought the cake out my dearest lil SN son said:
Happy Birthday Mommy!
I was so overwhelmed with love and happiness I just about cried. SN son just doesn't say things like that unless you repeatedly ask him to, but this time with out anyone saying anything beyond "It's mommy's birthday" he said that to me. He looked at me and said "Happy Birthday Mommy" and my heart sang with joy. Then DH started singing the happy birthday song and SN son joined in without either of us asking him to THEN he helped me blow out the candles THEN he ate his piece of cake WITH A FORK. We had to cut the pieces up for him but he nicely used a fork!
Turning 40 years old sucks but my SN son made it my best birthday yet.
