I have never been one that enjoys birthdays, I have my reasons but the main one is that I don't like the attention. That doesn't mean that I can't make "Minnie's" birthday amazing!! When you're a kid your birthday is like a national holiday, you get the gifts and all the attention. What could be better than that??
On Sunday as we finished up our nightly routine, Minnie was asking to relax on the couch and watch television. Usually she will watch an episode of "Mickie Mouse Clubhouse" hence her online identity as "Minnie" but as she climbed into my arms and said "can we watch bikes?" I sat in shock.
I watch a good deal of cycling and ride quite a bit but so much so that Minnie wants to watch it with me? I didn't get it and still don't, yes Minnie sees me when I'm finishing rides and has seen me race but I didn't think she enjoyed it. It's crazy, and when she gets her first bike on her birthday I can't wait for her to ask if I will ride with her.
As I said I don't like my birthday but I love Minnie's, her birthday is now my birthday. She may out grow this bike craze that she is in but for as long as it lasts I will enjoy every second of it. If her next craze is ballet I will enjoy that as well. I just want to see Minnie smiling!!
