I received a birthday card in the mail yesterday. Its sentiment?


(on the outside)   "I am so proud" 


(and on the inside because it's so worth waiting for)


"You have become your own unique self."



From my mother. Posted 3 days after my birthday. 


And she wonders why my dog doesn't like her.


So my husband texts me to ask if I am being "my most unique self" today. I'm pretty certain I deserved that for some past bit of sarcasm but I am failing to find the humor in his text right now :)
