The Pan-Continental Birthday Bash Expands!

January 6, 2009

Okay, I think I’m going to cry. . .

My best friend has a four-year-old who is without a doubt my *favorite* guy ever. I used to be able to spend a lot of time with him, but since I moved to NY–not so much. The other night, she was putting him to bed, and he said, with profound gravity. . .

“Mama, I’m going to marry you when I grow up.”

“Thank you, sweetheart,” Nic replied, a little taken aback, “but I’m already married to Daddy, and you can only be married to one person.”

Mikey drifted off to sleep, but apparently still had the subject on his mind, because the next morning he appeared for breakfast. . .

“Mama, I know that you’re married to Daddy.”

“That’s right.”

“So I decided that I’m going to marry ALI!”

Hey ya’ll. . . I’m betrothed!

Fast-forward to yesterday, when Mikey reminded Nic that he was still planning on marrying me. Nic mentioned that my birthday is on Friday, and Mikey immediately added my party to his busy calendar (isn’t he sweet??). Nic explained that I was in New York, and wasn’t having a birthday party, so. . .

So. . . (this seriously makes me tear up). . .

After much consideration (he was a little disturbed that I wouldn’t have a party), my best friend, my “bro”, and my favorite little boy are going to be making a Funfetti cake (my favorite!) and having a party for me this weekend, complete with a place set for me at the table!

Nic, Mike, and Mikey–I love you guys, and MISS YOU so much!



  1. Too cute, Ali-pie! So when are you posting pictures of your dearly betrothed?

  2. Too sweet. This came to mind when I read this (mostly for the last verse)…
    If that link doesn’t work, track down I’m Already Taken by Steve Wariner and give it a listen.

  3. Isn’t it a great song? I remember when it came out!
