36 years ago today my mom was getting ready for Christmas Eve dinner. She was due in early January and had no idea that I was ready to make my debut on Christmas morning. She blames the home made egg nog that my grandmother served her. My grandmother who was also born on Christmas day! Dr. Angel (that's no lie) never gave her an ultrasound and predicted that I was a girl based on my heartbeat.
As a Christmas baby I will say that I often felt "robbed" as a kid. Although my father tells a different story. (Mounds and mounds of presents) Just remember, always make sure your kid gets a birthday cake that they want and don't wrap their birthday presents in Christmas paper. They may not love it as a kid but now that I'm going on 36...I mean 32...ahem...29 I don't mind if my birthday passes by unnoticed. With a good moisturizer I will be able to easily fudge my age. : )
