ps- birthday confession

A small confession in relation to my birthday yesterday. :)

At the top of this little blog I list our ages, and prior to yesterday it said, "Me (27) and DH (25): TTC our first child..."

On my birthday I changed it to, "Me (28) and DH (26): TTC our first child...". I confess: DH and I do not have the same birthday. I am 2 years... and a few weeks older than DH.

But I hate that, for those few weeks, it looks like I am 3 years older. To avoid this, I decided that DH turns a year older the same day I do so we are always just 2 years apart (although he sure does tease me in those few weeks!). Maybe there are some "older women" out there who can relate!?

Don't worry, we still celebrate DH's birthday on his actual birthday. :)

CONFESSION TIME...

Barney is 2 years 3 months and 22 days younger than me...I do the SAME thing...only I'm worse, I age him a year...so that we're only 12 months apart.

I wish I was more like my grandparents--Grandpa was 7 years older than my grandmother!

or my great grandparents...my great grandfather was 52 when my grandmother was born, at the time my great grandmother was 30...thank goodness that side of the family has longevity!

Scott is a year and a half younger than me. I hate that half the year, like right now, when I'm 34 and he's 32. Boo. It's just like 'could you turn 33 already!'

Speaking from the other side (me younger, dh older... and his b-day is three weeks before mine), I love those few weeks where he's just that much older than me. *giggle*

Happy ICLW!

Hehe...that's too cute!

I'm on the COMPLETELY opposite end of things - dh is 35 and I'm 26! It looks like 9 years apart right now but that's only from from Feb. to May when I'll turn 27, then it's back to 8 years. 8 years apart sounds so much better to me!

I am 2 years, 7 months older than Mr. A!! So most of the year, I am definitely 3 years older than him.... I feel old!!

bunny said...

although, i get him back with older, and wiser...

Greg's birthday is in October and Mine is in January and for those 3 months I hate him being 7 years older than me...but I also don't want to add a year to my age, so he didn't officially turn 32 this year until I turned 26...he gets three months to be 1 year younger, lol!

My brother and I are 1 year and 1 month apart and for about a month it seems like I am older by 2 years and for that month he constantly reminds me that I am older. This year he kept saying your old, omg, your 26. I told him he was 25 and he'd say no I'm not, I'm 24. I told him to take a hike cause it was only for a month, lol!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

I can totally see where you're coming from with the age thing. I would probably do the same thing!(ICLW)

I can relate! I am 2 years 8 months older than DH. He just turned 25 and I will be 28 in July - I don't mind. My dad teases me about being a cradle robber LOL, but DH sure LOVES teasing me about how "OLD" I am...although he learned very quickly not to mention "OLD" when we are talking IF...not cool.

Brandi said...

LOL, I think I would have done the same thing, "making" DH turn a year older a few weeks early!

Happy birthday! :)

♥Tabitha said...

Oh-My-Goodness my husband and I are in the exact same situation! I am two months and two weeks older than him, so for a while there (and at our last RE appointment) I apear to be 3 years older than him...such a cradle robber! lol!

Liddy said...

First to answer your question. Probably not going to go Iron Commentator. I have a garden to look pretty for the summer.

Second, DH and I's birthday are two days apart. I actually like the 2 days where I am 1 year younger. :)

My hubby is exactly 3 months younger. I am not looking forward to my next birthday because for three months I'll be in my "30s", while he'll still be 29. Booooo...

Happy birthday! I know birthdays can sometimes be hard during this TTC journey.

lol I'm glad NYEBoy is older than I am. :-) He's only 1.5 years older than me, though. I wish he was a few years older some times LOL
