It is almost a perquisite to being a "blogger," but I like fall most. 

I have said time and time again that layers {cashmere, blazers, etc.} are more becoming on almost anyone than the San Diego uniform {shorts and flip flops. All. Year. Long...}.

When I was younger, I would get so excited when Halloween decorations would first be spotted in the stores as it meant that my birthday {in October} was coming. Now, with my in laws and marriages, there are eleven birthdays between September and November, with seven in October alone. As my family is a big birthday celebrating family {think, lots of dinners and decor, not so much a big party family}, the first signs of fall always made me excited.

Now being a mom, with two little birthdays to add to the mix in the fall, I don't know if excited is the right word. I want to be excited for them for birthdays, as I was always excited when I was little, but do I really want to celebrate the quick passage of time with my two little cuties? I know that we strive to make them independent little humans, but I live for these days of two naps, lots of snuggles and nonstop giggles once 'dada' is home. I always get so weirded out that I have put all my time energy, life, into these monkeys, and they will grow, dream and discover a life all their own that I will only get little glimpses of. 

Basically, I am rude and don't want to share. 

I don't want to share them or their time. I want them to be amazing global citizens, but come back and live with me. I never understood why my parents were less than pleased when I wanted to move to Texas, then New York City then Rome, Italy. I thought they were being unsupportive, but I realize now, being a parent myself, that they might not have wanted to share either. That is why I am so lucky to live in the same city as my in-laws, my parents and my brother and his new wife. I guess the San Diego uniform is worth it...
