Happy Anniversary of Your 25th Birthday

Every single year, when Hubster's birthday comes around, I start hearing a familiar refrain.

I'm so old. I just keep getting older. Why am I so old?

Obviously, Hubster is NOT old. Older, yes. But old? No. However, there is no way for me to convince him of this. Every since the day he turned 26, he has, in his mind, been old. 25 was his ideal age. Every year, he complains about his birthday. Since he is not turning 25, than he must be old. Every year, he attempts to convince me that we shouldn't do anything for his birthday. According to him, he just can't take any reminders that he just continues to get older.

This is coming from a man who watches Phineas and Ferb, eats cold pizza for breakfast and can do more pull-ups than anyone else I know. Yes, doesn't he just act so old?

I'm pretty good at compromise. Overall, I don't push Hubster to do things he doesn't want to do. But not celebrating? That isn't one of the things we are going to compromise on.

We will have cake.

We will have candles.

We will have presents.

I will find a babysitter and we will go out.

But it's all good. We aren't celebrating a birthday. We are celebrating the anniversary of him turning 25. Because that doesn't make him sound old at all.


  1. Happy birthday! Er... anniversary of 25. Whatever. :)

    I'm really only commenting to say that the cake looks amazing! How did you make it? Seriously, how many layers is it?

  2. Pulled sugar and a crepe (?) cake, Hubster is a lucky man.

  3. Oh, I remember thinking 26 and 27 and 28 were so old. And then I turned 34...

  4. Happy Birthday. And as a note, I loved Bunicula and all the books that follow.


  5. Wow! Gotta try that cake!
