I am reminded today of comments I’ve received from friends and my mum, ‘Don’t dare put me in your blog’. Sometimes I’ve ignored them and thankfully I’ve been forgiven. I like to think, despite their protestations, they did in fact like what was written.
However appearing on my blog is not for everyone.
So today with that in mind, I will not write a word about a certain someone who has brought so much joy to my life. I wont speak of how proud I am as I remember this day eighteen years ago.
As promised, not a word.
Instead I’ll share this song I chose many years ago for a certain child of mine. Any parent will be able to relate to this one. If I were to say ‘Happy Birthday’ to a certain child of mine on their 18th, this is the song I would publish.
But I’m not going to.

happy birthday to the anonymous special person who is close to you and you love )
Thanks beth. I’m whispering in case you don’t know. )
Such veiled writing! I almost didn’t see the message! lol 😉
What message? I posted nothing. 🙂
I am not going to say happy birthday to anyone turning 18 in Ireland today. And I’m not going to get all sappy about that song either.
Isn’t it the best song? Pity I couldn’t post it.
Yeah, it’s a good thing you didn’t say anything about all of this.
You are too funny. Happy Birthday to the 18-year-old person that we absolutely don’t know anything about at all ever under any circumstances.
Thank you. I’ll whisper your wish to her when she’s asleep.
Sometimes ya just gotta do what ya gotta do. I hope your anonymous 18 year old gas a wonderful day today,
It was a great day alright. Hard to believe time sometimes. I’m only a little older myself!
Oh, I hear ya! I was only 10 when I had mine!! Haha!!! My brain tells me I’m still 20 something. My body doesn’t buy it!
I was always worried about writing about my family. So it was an amazing thrill when they all grew up to be writers. And even more amazing to be THANKED for what I wrote. [ http://barbtaub.com/2013/05/07/mothers-day-off-part-1/%5D
Happy Birthday to 18-year-old-who-shall-not-be-named!
Oh my I live in hope. I just read that post by your daughter. The link didn’t work so I searched and got it here, http://barbtaub.com/2013/05/07/mothers-day-off-part-1/. It’s a beautiful tribute to you.
I’ll have to go look up part 2 and 3.
Thanks! The point is that they forgive you (eventually). Or maybe it’s that if your kid becomes a writer, they can’t afford Mother’s Day presents. Hmmm…
Happy Birthday to you, too, Tric, as it sounds like today calls for celebration of the heart.
I read your comment last night and it was so apt. On big occasions such as 18th’s we reflect, and you are right, I celebrated from the heart last night.
LOL. As they get older, they mellow. Happy Birthday to your anonymous child.
I’ll tell you on her 21st if there is any thaw. 🙂
I will respect her wishes and absolutely NOT wish a very public ‘happy birthday’ to the 18 yr old woman who desires to remain anonymous !
however, I am always looking for an excuse to play this . . .
hope your daughter gets a laugh out of this song, tric 😆
I’ve still not had the nerve to tell her, but if she sees it this song might soften the blow. Good choice.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.
Psst… Happy Birthday to her. Pass it on.
Psst… Eh no but I’ll whisper it to her when she’s not at home. 🙂
Oh, that’s a good idea. You’ve obviously thought this through carefully.
