You're going to think I'm terrible, but -- I hate birthdays! Mostly my own but especially kid birthdays. Don't get me wrong. I'm so fortunate to have my children and of course I celebrate each one's anniversary of their birth because each one changed my life in more ways than they'll ever know.

What I hate is trying to meet the expectations of other mothers and the sheer panic I feel when each one approaches. So then I don't do anything and then I feel guilty because another birthday has passed and I barely acknowledged it. Another year when I don't win mother of the year.

But there's this constant nagging in the back of my head that I'm not as perfect of a mother as Susie Q down the street. One of my kids actually came home from school one day with a custom tie dyed shirt, tie dye party favors, tie dye candy -- there was a definite theme. Me? If she's lucky, I show up during her lunch with cupcakes I had gotten from the store on my way to the school.

So ya know what? I'm owning it. I hate birthdays and you can celebrate with me (or not!) with this fun colorway. It's got varying shades of a warm grey with alll the speckles of the rainbow! Like the sprinkles on store bought cupcakes.
