Today's the day!


Happy Birthday Mighty Marine!!

May 19 be your best year yet....

Y'all know it was the Spawn's birthday yesterday, she's such a hard girl to shop for! Somehow I managed to pull it all off, though, even getting a hand-clenched squeal of glee out of her on not one but TWO moments.

Moment One: Fake lashes and nude palette make up kit in birthday bag.

Moment Two: Ulta card in birthday card.

We'd gone out for her birthday meal of choice, Taco Bell, and had sit down to eat when the Mighty Marine called on Facetime to wish his sister a happy birthday.

There just really isn't anything quite like having a hard shell taco fall apart in your hands when you take the first<b> bite </font></b>while talking to someone on Facetime. Even better, watching it all happen in the moment on the tiny little window in the corner of the screen.

Priceless!

"Ma, you still got a tomato by your neck."

Not the most hilarious of comments, but I think we all laughed for a good ten minutes when he'd said this. I flicked it off only to have someone immediately walk past me and watch it land on their arm.

The Spawn whispered 'oh my God mom' into my ear and we laughed even harder.

I had been so worried about the Mighty Marine not being present in this years birthday festivities.... Yet there he was, witnessing it all.

Gone but not gone.

And now his birthday is today!

The Mighty Marine is a mighty 19!!

He will be Facetiming again, later today, so we can share a moment on his birthday as well. I think this time we'll pull out the party hats and noise makers....

Happy Birthday to my Mighty Marine!

Ms. secret_lade,

"I have to ask... Is that what they call Navy men? Squids?? I'd been wondering about your profile name."

Yes, that is the nickname for the surface sailors in the Navy, hence my profile name. I was a career sailor. Did 21 years.

    Quoting MrWrong4RghtNow:
    Awwww. That's great!! Hope they both had fun on their respective days.

    But I've noticed a trend with you. Wearing food. Not complaining mind you. Just gives a reason to lick it off.

    Hmm. Yeah. My flirting skills need work.
I certainly don't do it on purpose.... I'm not exactly sure what the deal is. LOL

    Ms. secret_lade,

    Next time you talk to you Mighty Marine, wish the Jarhead a Happy Birthday from an old Squid, USN Retired, and thank him for his service.
I certainly will!

    It sounds like a family classic, and one you'll all remember. It's been tattooed into your brains — good for you! 👍 😊 🎂 ❗❗
I think we'll definitely be remembering this birthday for years to come. It was his first birthday away.

    Happy 19th birthday to your mighty marine, and a belated happy birthday to your gleeful spawn.
Oh, it was tearful today when she couldn't figure out how to use her gift card online. Not quite sure what she was doing wrong, but I got it to work no problem... Which made her mad.

    Maybe you need one of those cones, like the vet uses on animals, to catch the food that you drop during meals.
It is truly impossible to eat one of those hard shell tacos without having it fall apart on you at some point. I'm still toying with the idea of an adult bib!

    Happy Birthday Mighty Marine! Wow....nineteen. The beginning of the end of his teen years. He's accomplished a lot in his years so far and the best are yet to come. Hope he has a wonderful B-day and you and Spawn get to enjoy another Facetime talk to celebrate!
I hadn't thought of it that way... It is the end of his teen years. It seems like just the other day I was 19 myself... Time really does fly.
