Happy 30th Birthday, Mike

In honor of the celebration of the birth of our family's patriarch I bring you: the return of a little Mike Check and 30 things I love about him, complete with picture collages.

"Over the top", you say? Nothing is too much for the father of my babies. It may be a bit sappy and there may be too many pictures and some repeats from last year, but you'll just have to deal, or don't read it. Here we go.


While talking last night about this blog post and how I could come up with 30 things I love about him, Mike said: "Are you sure you can come up with that many that aren't innappropriate?"

After we made him birthday "cake", that needs to sit all night I took a picture for the blog and Mike said:
"Don't take a picture of it, it's going to look all gross and purple like all of your food shots"

While hanging out Mike was talking about wanting to go get a Whopper and I said that the burgers would be better if we wait until their deal (buy one get on for 55 cents) starts, and Mike said:
"See, that's where you demonstrate your ignorance, Whoppers would be just as good now"

As I was describing to Mike how Naomi and Bernadette baptize each other in the bath, I explained that Naomi baptizes Bernadette then Bernadette baptizes Naomi and Mike said:
"And then they pee and then they drink the water and then they baptize each other again"


30 things I love about my now 30-year-old husband:
