Cody came into the world and into my life. We celebrated his birthday by having the flu.
Not really. Well, yes really. He has the flu, but we didn't choose to celebrate his birthday that way. He is feeling a bit better today, but is still pretty miserable.
What a way to spend a birthday, huh?
The most shocking news of the day is that Cody actually got a birthday card from his father. Shocking, because for 16 years, he'd wanted nothing to do with us. Now, he sent a birthday card. I was trying to be nice, but I just couldn't resist.
"If he suddenly wants to start being a dad," I said, "he can chip in for some of that $100 bucks I just spent on flu medicine for you."
I really did try...
