Dear Mum

Dear Mum,

Happy Birthday!

And just to let you know I was first to call you and say Happy Birthday.

But you didn't answer.

So I just need to write this to prove that I was first.

I'm sure I beat my bro and sis.

And of course that's because I love you more.

Love Heather

********************************

Ever since we were kids my brother sister and I have this thing about being the first to say Happy Birthday to our parents. Kinda over-competitive. And kind of defeats the whole calling to wish you a happy birthday thing when you pick up the phone and say 'Hi mum, happy birthday. Was I first?'

And rather sad that we're now all adults and still do it.

But you know I was third to call on Mother's Day and so I just had to get this out there that I was first on mum's birthday...

Too funny...we have the exact same thing going in my family! The only difference is that it includes sibling b-days too. Now that I live in Japan I win every year because of the time difference.
Your Mom and I have b-days one day apart. SO happy B-day Heathers mom, you super Gemini!
(And thank-you for being living proof that a Gemini woman can raise stable, responsible children- oops sorry GW if you read this and Violet if she reads your blog too but you must know what I am talking about).

And totally off topic but the security word thingy I have to type in is "fungi" *lol*

So who won? Do you ever plead that you were first if you take into consideration time differences?

Lily - totally OK. You can write similar post in twenty years about me - although I have inkling that my children, who will hopefully be responsible, may not be all that stable :)

So funny!!!

Hope you won your little bet.

Next time you should send a video message of you and the girls that will arrive a week before her birthday- then you really will be the first!!!

Thank you for the well wishes- I won!!! Oh and the wishes to my mum, too (secondary importance) Not only did I win but my brother didn't call at all which I think puts me a good 10 points ahead, hey? ;P

And as for stable and responsible?? Hmmm K came back with a 'no comment'. Very tactful is K....
