Happy Birthday to my Superman

Filed under: Mr. Wonderful — by InterstellarLass @ 9:13 am

Today is my sweet Nick’s birthday. He’ll kill me for this. He’s not used to being acknowledged on his birthday. My idea of a good birthday is a rare steak, a cigar, a beer, a good book, and peace and quiet. I don’t want bells and whistles and hoopla and people singing to me. Or so he says. Granted, he’s been single for the prior years of his life. But, as a friend of his said, he now has family that loves him and wants to celebrate him and he should allow us to do so. Still, he doesn’t like a lot of attention.

So, I’m gradually breaking him in. I allowed him to open his gifts at home last night. I figured opening them at the restaurant would be uncomfortable.

Remember when we shopped for Zed’s birthday? There was a particular item Nick wanted to bring home. Well, he got it.

Along with a few other Superman gift items. I think he was well pleased. Then, Nick, the kids and I went to Outback for dinner. So, he got his steak. Rare of course. But then he went and ruined it with A1. But that’s his thing. The kids and I sang Happy Birthday to him and he smiled. He and Zed hugged too. Zed initiated it. That made me smile.

And, this weekend, we’re going to Kansas City. We’ll see some of Nick’s old friends and have lots of fun.

Happy Birthday Baby. Cake is the best thing. Your love is like cake. Mwah.


  1. Aww, how sweet. Love the Superman. Tell Nick he’s crazy! My idea of a perfect birthday is people fussing over me all week, showering me with gifts and well wishes.

  6. Hope your Nick enjoyed his day. I’m sure he didn’t mind all the fuss. I’m pretty certain he’ll get used to it.

  8. I can’t even imagine not wanting a fuss over your birthday! I usually try to make mine last at least a month and sadly my kids are taking on my habits for their own birthdays. With 4 kids, that sure is a lot of “birthday”! Hope he had a great day!

  15. Happy Birthday!

  16. That’s the coolest! He’ll get used to it, being single has a way of making you hide your birthday so no one realizes you’re spending it alone, he just has to get used to having a family help him celebrate!

  17. Happy Birthday to Nick!

    Yeah, make a fuss! I think he’ll get used to it.

  18. Happy Birthday Nick!
    I’m sort of like Nick also, I don’t like any fuss over me on my b-day either.
    But what you’re doing sounds like a blast. Have fun!

  19. I always thought those people that said they didn’t want a fuss over their birthday really did deep down.

    At least, I always did 🙂

  20. Nice! What a great way to celebrate.

    Happy Birthday!

  21. I’m a fan of the whole Superman gig. My BH fits the description, including bending things for fun.

    Happy birthday to Nick, and congrats on the Zed thing. My heart melted when the chairman and my Superman understood the “eternal nature” of our family.
