Today was Matt's birthday! I can't quite explain it, but I have this sense of proudness for him today. The simplest way to put it - I'm happy he was born.
He had to work. (Apparently there's a world out there where birthdays and national holidays are less important than making vaccines. Hmph.) But when he got home, we made enchiladas and drank Dos Equis with squeezed limes. I baked a cake, too, but it wasn't picture worthy. It stuck to the pan and crumbled everywhere. Carter wouldn't even eat it.
I got Matt the things he's always talked about wanting, but felt bad spending money on. A decadent, scented men's shampoo and some clean-cut shoes.
So now Carter and Matt have matching Topsiders. I'm kinda aching for a pair now, too ... the girls' version, of course. We'd have to change our family name to The Topsiders.
