Things I Love: September Birthdays

If you’d have told me 10 years ago that I’d have two kids both born in the month of September, I very likely would’ve punched you square in the face and un-Friended you on Facebook (if Facebook had existed). I’m serious. But here I am, ten years later, and I’ve had to change my whole world view because that’s exactly what happened …two of my kids were born in September.

I have never been a fan of September born people, but I love my two little Septemberians (I’m assuming that’s what you call folks born in September). And the good news about having two of your children with birthdays so close together, you get to throw a combined party and get all that gathering of family out of the way in one shot.

One of the traditional songs my family sings at birthday parties is “Happy Birthday” and while of I have fond memories of my mother and my aunts taking the high notes while Uncles sang bass, and grandma beat-boxed (we would’ve dominated as a family a capella act on The Sing-Off, btw …recaps of my favorite show at spunkybean), it’s entirely possible we sounded more like we do in the videos below.

I know at least one person who hopes the new “screaming” v. “singing” doesn’t catch on. And I’m sure the “screaming” was a one-time thing, right? Cuz I know kids …they hate screaming and laughing.

Hard to believe my youngest is 5. Enjoy this little-known birthday song and let me know if you need to know where to send gifts.

  1. I would like to express some takhns to you just for rescuing me from this matter. As a result of scouting through the the web and coming across tricks which were not helpful, I figured my life was done. Being alive without the solutions to the issues you have solved by way of this guide is a critical case, as well as the kind that could have negatively damaged my entire career if I had not discovered the website. Your own training and kindness in dealing with every item was excellent. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a thing like this. I’m able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks so much for this skilled and result oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse your blog to any person who needs to have recommendations about this issue.

  2. This sort of boundary % black and white is soteimmes quite troublesome. But, I do think it is good to open your blog/journal for comments, coz somehow it is still very encouraging to have people responding to what you have wrote. ^^ eh well, just feel you are a very poor guy having to reply to dozens of messages everyday, which seems never-ending sigh T_T honestly, I feel frustrated whenever I come across comments like these it is just like a cycle newbies step into the gothic lolita field. After acquiring certain knowledge about the scene, they start to fighting against each other verbally with a view to confirm theirselves as an eligible one And one more thing, it’s a trend I guess. Many people nowadays are impulse-driven: Responding without reading and thinking thoroughly about the 6Ws. (that’s why I say you are poor)XDXD~ perhaps let’s put an end to this discussion, shall we? because the next debate will be staged somewhere again one day UNLESS we all learn how to accept and appreciate others. ^^ p.s. my comments are in fact very local and rude( in cantonese~ because I was too tired when I gave the comment~ )
