Thanks, Mom

Hey Mom, thanks for
carrying me for 10 months,
giving birth to me,
and joyfully putting up with me for 34 years.
I am grateful for the warm birthday wishes
and birthday fuss but I’m starting to wonder
if birthdays should really be about the woman who did the birthing?
I didn’t really do anything, you are the one who did all the work so shouldn’t all the fuss be directed towards you today?
But maybe that is what Mother’s Day is for?
So ok, I’ll keep my birthday.
