Yesterday, March 11, was my birthday. I spent the first few hours of the day at the ER with my son. He had high grade fever last weekend and when it abated, he went back to school. The same night he called and told me that he has rashes all over.

At 2:35 A.M., on my birthday I was at the hospital parking lot contemplating on the past. When I was in my 30's I thought that when my kids are all grown up surely I'd be less stressed out being a mom. Well... no. It seems like motherhood is an evolving condition, phase or situation. One does not stop being a mom. That I am sure of.

My girls came home before dinner bearing gifts and cake. D3 said she was supposed to treat us to dinner but since "baby boy" is sick, she said she'll just order in. I said there's no need as I cooked dinner anyway. D4 brought home a mango torte (to die for) and D2 made her special Korean kimbap. Dinner was noisy as usual. We had fun trying to assemble D3's gift - a portable laptop desk. When it was done D4 brought out her portable lamp with an electric fan that is supposed to go with the portable desk. D1 was on duty.

When dinner and desserts were over, I helped in putting out the dishes by the kitchen sink. The pile of dishes and glasses was tall and it times like this, how I wish my kitchen has 2 stone sinks. I wrapped up my birthday in my bedroom, tap-tapping away on my laptop on my portable desk lighted by my portable lamp, as I responded to the many greetings I received through FB.
