  1. 1. 33 Reasons
  2. 2. Happy birthday, my most wonderful one. Since I can’t spend any money without making you feel guilty. And since I don’t have the time anymore to be creative or elaborate… …here’s a list of 33 reasons why I love you so much.
  3. 3. <ul><li>1. Because you raise the energy at home. Even when A and I are feeling down. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>2. Because you have tireless energy and enthusiasm. Everyday, you pick A up from HH, bring her home, entertain her, and feed her. And when I get home (late as always) , you’re all smiles. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>3. Because you’re patient and forgiving when I’m nasty and unforgiving. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>4. Because you mother me and treat me like a child sometimes. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>5. Because you’re silly and you make me laugh. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>6. Because you always find new ways to connect to A – and find novel ways to make her learn new things - and teach me to be a better parent. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>7. Because you eat healthy and TRY to make me follow your example. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>8. Because you refuse to wake up on Saturday and Sunday mornings. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>9. Because half a glass of wine is all you can handle. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>10. Because you enjoy what I cook. Or, at least, make me feel like you do, even if you don’t. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>11. Because you’re so low maintenance. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>12. Because sometimes you just “have to be a girl” and go shopping. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>13. Because you’re over-protective about A and wont let her go out without sunscreen. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>14. Because you’re so private and secretive about your life with everyone (and every website registration!)…except for me. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>15. Because you respect every cent and watch every dollar. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>16. Because you can make a delicious meal regardless of what’s in the refrigerator. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>17. Because you let me smoke. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>18. Because you invent new words (still - even 14 years after knowing you…), and it becomes part of our lexicon. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>19. Because you remind me – without you ever saying it, of course – how incomplete I am. </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>20. Because you always give me a window into how to be a better person. </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>21. Because when A was stuck to me (and nasty to you) – you never once flinched, or pushed her away. </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>22. Because you love me so deeply and fundamentally, and I understand that I can never love you as much you love me. </li></ul>
  25. 25. <ul><li>23. Because you iron my shirts. </li></ul>
  26. 26. <ul><li>24. Because “your pee waits for me pee.” </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>25. Because nothing makes you happier than spending the day at home with me and A. </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>26. Because you don’t like to drive on weekends. </li></ul>
