A Double Digit Birthday Extravaganza

Bubba, my son, is going to be having a birthday in about six days. He'll be eleven. I've been planning his party. Of course, Bubba had to put his two cents in.

"Mama, I want a piñata, six Nerf guns, silly string, party hats, balloons, and lots of cake, ice cream, and candy."

"Bubba, don't you think that's a little extravagant?" I asked.

He shook his head. "No. It's a double digit party. You only get eight in your lifetime. I'll only have seven more after this. It has to be special!"

"Oh," I said. "Well, I'm going to have a double digit birthday, too. Can I be extravagant?"

"Sure, Mama. What are you going to get?"

"A ticket to jump out of an airplane."

He looked at me like I was crazy. "Really?"

"Yep. Because I have only four more double digit birthdays left. I'm half-way done with them, so I'm going to make this one special!"

(Yes, ladies and gentlemen, yours truly is going to jump out of an airplane in less than two weeks. It's going to be awesome!)

  1. I am assuming you will be attached to a parachute and that you will get a picture or video to share with the story. Happy birthday to Bubba, but I'm taking his side in thinking your crazy. :)

  2. Hello,

    Eleven is a nice number and surely it would be wonderful to have an extravagant birthday. Even otherwise birthdays are special and it is worth splurging some money for celebration.

    As for jumping out of an airplane, surely it would be a very thrilling experience and not many will have the courage to do that.

    My advance birthday wishes to your a wonderful son.He is a Leo and you are also a Leo. Fantastic. Both of you are a fabulous company.

    Best wishes

  7. How cool! Jumping out of an airplane is definitely more exciting than a bunch of silly string and party hats. (I hope you still get to have ice cream and cake, though.) Um, more exciting for YOU, that is. Can't say that I have a great desire to jump out of a perfectly good plane.

    Happy birthday to Bubba... and to you.

  10. Good luck to you on your parachute jump. Hope the birthdays go with a swing. There are 2 birthdays in my family this week, my daughter on Thursday and her husband's on Sunday.
    What song will you be thinking whilst taking your parachute jump?
    "Come Fly With Me?"

  11. Eight double digit birthdays... I sure hope so.

  12. Double digit birthday? I hadn't thought of that before. Great timing for this, as I, too, have a double digit birthday in less than two weeks.

    Have fun jumping out of the airplane.

  13. Jumping out of an airplane? Wow, I'd never be brave enough to do that. Happy early birthday to both you and Bubba! :)

  14. Double digit birthday, I have never thought in that way. That means I have to celebrate after two years. Also convey words to Babu "Happy birthday".
