It occurs to me for the first time in my life that birthdays may be more important to our mothers than to us. I can’t remember what I did for most of my birthdays, but my Mum will always remember giving birth to me as I will always remember the day I gave birth to Jake. Mum & Dad sang Happy Birthday and presented me with orchids via Skype. Also got some boots and books, and a cheeseburger and fries with homemade garlic mayo at Gourmet Burger Kitchen. After all the concern of finding somewhere child-friendly, Jake sleeps through lunch!
