well if I don't tell, no one will know....

Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday dear motherbumper-r-r-r-r-r-r-r
Happy Birthday to me

Because you'd have no idea unless I told you. And thank you for asking, I'm thirty-sfjaifoa

Didn't catch that? Too bad. Too sad. I guess you'll have to wait until next year to catch that. Not that I have any hang-ups about it (no-o-o-o-o).

First picture: Christening age 2 months. And it's the first picture my parents took of me. I am the youngest of three children and there are 7 gazillion (approx) pictures of my sister between ages 0 days and 60 days. Of me?: 2.

Second picture: age 5 months. And that Jack-in-the-box is the sole reason I am scared of clowns today. Seriously. I hate motherf*ckin' clowns.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! July is a busy month for birthdays!

Happy Birthday! I, too, am thirty - sfjaifoa. Go figure! Say, did you beat the heat? Much better today, eh? Thank god!

For those outside of Toronto, we TO bloggers have just survived (hopefully) the worst heat wave. We all deserve a round of applause and a good stiff drink.

Mother Bumper said...

Thank you ladies!

beth - have that baby today! Or soon I hope (I hope it's not this hot out in the praries)

u_m - we have to have that good stiff drink soon (though knowing me it will be a carbonated bevie with onion rings on the side... mmmmmmm onion rings... I'm still kicking myself for not getting those the other day in the park). Where was I? Oh yes, whooo hooo on being thirty-sfjaifoa!

I know, I know, it's silly of me to reply in my own comments (like I assume that readers will return to read this stuff) but I have to grab moments to say things when I can. Bumper does not afford me much time (even on my birthday). I just want people to know that I love their comments!!!!!

Lisa said...

What a cool post! I love it.

And a big Happy Birthday shout out to you from Texas!

Marla said...

appyHay irthdayBay, from someone who at the end of the month will have to change her profile to say that she's in her LATE thirties, not mid-thirties any longer. Sigh,.

Mother Bumper said...

I love this!!!!

Thank you Lisa - I just finished reading your picture post and was trying to think of something witty to say. You make me laugh so hard (everyone - go visit Mamarazzi right now!).

Marla! Yup, joining the club today... I am officially closer to 40 then 35. But aren't we the coolest momma's around? Hell ya!

Bri said...

happy happy birthday!!!!
btw we too had sort of a breakthrough!!!
Yeah what's with clowns, I hate them with a passion, especially after reading one of Stephen King's book that had them.
Have a super day!

julia said...

Happy birthday!

Not a lover of clowns over here either. They're freaky.

sunshine scribe said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I too am thirty-sfjaifoa but I don't get more sfjaifoa until November. I love that you told us it was your birthday. I am with Urban Mommy - you deserve a drink - especially in this heat. A nice tall cold one. Enjoy your day!!!!

Jezer said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! How 'bout we all gather at Bump's bar and have the wee bartender mix us up some birthday libations! It's ONLY 103F (38C) here, and it's not even August yet...

I hope you have a magnificent, fabulous, and super-excellent birthday!!!

Mother Bumper said...

ahhhhh! this is great! And I'm glad no meanies have come out to say that I'm tooting my own horn (well...'cause, I am) but I have always loved my birthday and I figured I love my bloggy friends and how else can I share one of my most fav days unless I tell you all!

Bri - I'm happy for the breakthrough and the cover of "IT" by Stephen King freaks me O.U.T also.

Julia - thank you for your bday wishes and mutual agreement on freakiness of clowns.

sunshine - Whoo Hoo on the thirtysomethings we are! I would L.O.V.E. a tall glass of whatever you are in your picture (long island ice tea, perhaps - which incidently I used to call panty remover - as soon as I wean the bump, I'm ordering a pitcher of the stuff).

I will be out site visiting tonight when hus gets home so I'll be talking to you all later! Gotta run, Bumper is dismantling the kitchen.

Mother Bumper said...

JEZER!!!! - Thanks for the birthday wishes! It's only 32 here so I guess I shouldn't complain (but it was 41 yesterday and it's freaking FREAKIN' humid). We are soooo hitting a bar someday soon.

Bump Daddy said...

You have a cool site and I like you as a person.

Perhaps you would like to make money like me? Yes! Visit my web site and ...

Just joking! It's me. Bump Daddy!

Happy Birthday beautiful. See ya tonight!

Mother Bumper said...

giggle giggle
hee hee I've got a boyfriend (blush)

I bet I'll see ya' tonight (tee hee hee)

Damn... he's so good at reducing me to a lil' schoolgirl

ninepounddictator said...

Hey! Happy B-day!
I don't mind the clowns. Like the balloon animals. But that's just me.

lildb said...

xoox

crazymumma said...

Oh Happy Birthday! I hope you have a serious night of festivities planned, may I suggest a child friendly patio with umbrella drinks? Have a great 20 SOMETHING Birthday, Anne

Mother Bumper said...

WOW WOW WOW - thank you all! this birthday rocks!

NPD - thank you for your kind wishes :)

lil'db - OH YEAH BABY _ I"M HAVING CAKE - CHEESECAKE!!!!!!

AC - I so wish (1) it was a twenty-something (not really but kinda) and (2) patio drinks..... sometime soon, I hope, OH GOD I HOPE SO....

Thanks ladies - you ALL ROCK!!!!

I have to stop abusing the punctuation or I may wake up with 50 !'s stuck in my back.

penelopeto said...

happy birthday to you! get that babe of yours to mix you up a nice stiff one and enjoy the evening with your b-friend.

Her Bad Mother said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

Maybe we need to get you some cake if/when we park it up this week?

soleclaw said...

Happy birthday!

If it helps, I'm afraid of clowns too.

something blue said...

Hope your day was really special!
Gifts, gifts! Bring 'em on...
I love unwrapping luxurious items while savouring cheesecake. Then it's time for another round. Less than one percent shows up in Bumper's night cap. Might as well make it a double.

Happy Birthday!

pseudostoops said...

Motherbumper, as another Katie who goes by Kathleen at work I was a little frightened after reading your sweetjuniper comment that you might actually *be* me, but now that I know we have different birthdays, I'm reassured.

Happy Birthday!

Jenny said...

HAPPAY BIRTHDAY GIRLIE! In my mind you don't look a day over 22.

Also? That clown would scare the shit out of me.

bubandpie said...

A much belated happy birthday (I suck at birthdays) - oh, and I popped by to say how much I love your new profile pic! Bumper is too, too cute - I love that intense look in her eyes.

kittenpie said...

Wish I had read this BEFORE I met you today! Happy bday and thanks for sharing your pastries. Lovely to meet both you and the little one.

Mom101 said...

Hope you had a very happy bday! We must be about the same thirty sfjaifoa because I had that same clown.

mamatulip said...

HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY!

Hope it was great. :)

Dutch said...

I'm late, but still wishing you a happy birthday.

scarbie doll said...

I'm really late, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

PS: Wish I could claim "muffin top," but it's all Clinton from What Not To Wear. I agree -- it's genius.
