March is always a big month for DC.
It is my birthday month, which means "out" to dinner for him, or in this case "take out at home" dinner for him.
AND it is also HIS birthday month, which is much more important.
Both my and DC’s birthdays are this month - so you know he is announcing this daily (many, many times). Numbers were never his thing and you might remember when he was 28 - it was Twenty-eighteen (in DC speak), 29 was Twenty-nineteen. Now he’s turning 30 (!!!!!) this month, so 30 is now Twenty-Thirty. The funny thing is that he seems to have absolutely no problem pronouncing and announcing my age! No problem at all - clear as a bell.
This year, celebrating my and his birthdays seems to be extra important to him and of course it is …
He has not really been able to go anywhere for fun in almost exactly a year. All he really looks forward to is getting takeout a couple of times per week.
I totally understand this. I cannot say that I always have the patience for the reminders and continuous questions, which have reached a record high this month, but I try.
The bulletin board with letters will arrive on Thursday. I am sure we will get a lot of use out of it, even after this whole pandemic is over.
I know that he is disappointed that he can't have the birthday that he usually has with his friends. I am trying to make this one special for him.
(More about that later)
Fingers crossed for a Happy Birthday for DC!

In case you are new here: “I tell stories, most of the time; single individual stories about this or that. Some may be written with humor and some may come across as “Oh, look at the cute thing DC did or said” (he does crack me up at times) but my object is always to make people understand how his mind works, never to "make fun of him"
