My mom will be turning the big 5-0 in November so now is the time my sister, brother and I are planning her birthday bash. I was talking to her via text and managed to get what she would like for dinner and gift ideas without being obvious that it is for her birthday.

Over the hill my mom will go

My mom will be turning the grand 5-0 come November this year. She has been through so much that I don't think anyone has gone through as much as her. She's endured cancer three times, chronic back pains and surgeries and a whole lot more.

Mom's birthday is coming and between my brother, sister and I, we want to make it special for her. We couldn't come up with ideas on what to do because mom is so specific so out of the blue, last night while I was texting mom, I asked her some questions on what she would like to eat if someone cooked her a dinner and what her ideal gift would be between a tablet or a kindle. I really assumed she would choose steaks for her ideal meal but I was wrong. She said lasagna, garlic cheese bread, salad and banana splits. I was shocked to say the least. Now, the gift she chose really shocked me because she would always complain that she didn't have a electronic book reader.

Now that I know what she wants, I have to exchange the information with my brother and sister. They are going to help me go all out with her decorations, cake and dinner. I will be buying her tablet. I have quite a few Amazon giftcards I have earned so I will be using those on her gift. My brother and sister may even get her something to go with the tablet since that is all that shes asking for.

I plan on asking my step-dad to somehow keep her occupied and away from there house on the day of the party for at least 2 hours. We need time to decorate and get everything in order before she sees it. Between her kids and all 9 grandkids, she should have a blast. I will thank at least.


Birthday, Over The Hill
