Feeling Better...and a child who is one year older!

Finally...I'm feeling better and Buttercup is on the mend. Valiant managed to avoid our "plague" and celebrated turning 14 yesterday. This was our first birthday celebration without their father and it was tough. Buttercup and I took Valiant out to breakfast, then we took him bowling. We waited for Charming to get off work and finished off with an early dinner at Red Robin and we capped the evening off by having all the neighborhood kids over for cake and ice cream. We managed to time things just right, such that Superman was able to join in while everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to Valiant. (Unfortunately, we haven't figured out how to make Skype a transporter, so he could only watch while the cake and ice cream were served.)

So, Happy Birthday, Valiant! I think you're the best!

P.S. Thanks to everyone for their well wishes and their birthday greetings to Valiant...we so appreciated them...

Sounds like a wonderful time was had and the best was made with dad being gone.... Your children will "grow" so much through this experience - and congrats to you for keeping it all together!

Aww! It sounds like he had a great birthday!!! I'm sure everyone missed dad, of course, but at least he got to see you all!

Yeah, at this point I am just shooting for an internet connection that stays up for more than a couple of hours at a time. As of right now, we have been down for over a day and I am not sure when we will be back up. Thank God for having internet at work!

Happy Birthday to your Valiant Man! =)

I too have been sicky. Praying the rest of the family doesn´t get it.

Glad you are doing better.

Glad you are feeling better. Happy Birthday Valiant. You may have had the first without Dad, but remember next year, you get the first with him back! And it won't be long now. You guys are doing so awesome keeping your spirits up and working together even through sickness and birthdays apart.
Hopefully spring will be here soon and we all can get well. This ball of fire in the sky actually woke me up this morning. It was so nice.
