The 40th Birthday

March has always been a month of celebrations for us. It is a month that holds our wedding date, and the birthdays of both Roboman and myself.

This year was a little more special because Roboman just turned 40! I was all prepared to organize a big do, as it is a milestone year in many people's books. However, being the practical fellow he is, he said no to any sort of lavish celebration, and told me that he just wanted to spend a day with just me (read: no kids).

I planned a simple dinner celebration with our girls and my sister-in-law on his actual birthday, and made arrangements so that I could spend the whole of the next day just to be with him. We are truly thankful to my sister-in-law and a family friend, who helped to babysit our children for the day.

It has been so long since Roboman and I have gone out as a couple, so having three uninterrupted meals, a spa session, and a day of continuous conversation felt beautifully unreal and so wonderful. We talked, laughed, held hands, and enjoyed all the "just us" moments that we so miss. It was an epic date and I was reminded all over again why we chose each other, and what a gem he is.

Happy Birthday Roboman! Thank you for being you. I love you.

Happy birthday to your dear hubby! Your hubby sounds like my hubby. For his birthday or any special occasion, my hubby always prefers just "us-time" rather than having a party or a family day with kids. Nice that you went for a spa!!! Ever since we discovered this Thai massage place on my birthday last year, we have gone back there again for our wedding anniversary! Massages are one of the best things on earth!
