Birthday parties,presidents, and hearts..

                                 Birthday parties, presidents, and hearts.
Sixteen years ago today I became a mom.
I share the birthday month with my first-born.
We also share the in between observances….
Valentine’s day is the 14th and Presidents Day is the 20th.
Its the month that is the exhaustion of winter,
yet hopeful as there is more daylight.
February is just a plain grey.
There can be blizzards and large snow storms..
Where even some birthday parties were canceled.
Often you would then find gifts being sent to you
 in the heat of August.
Hearts are everywhere this month as well as candy.
Chocolates are half off by the time its my birthday.
That is the greatest part of being born this month.
