Happy Birthday, Dakota

July 3, 2007 at 9:10 pm (Dakota)

Because I SUCK as an Aunt and because I’m going to be late with the boy’s birthday (July 6) I’m posting this birthday message to my dear nephew.

“Happy 11th Birthday, Dakota. I know you live in Arizona and by the time I buy a card, stick some money in it and mail it, it will be well past the July 6th date. Forgive me! You know I’ve been late before. Love ya!”

    I always liked getting things a few days after my birthday. It always made it still feel like my birthday. I think he shouldn’t be too scarred for life.

  2. Zed said,

    Happy Birthday, Dakota. Love your name!

  3. Doctor Mom™ said,

    What a GREAT name for a handsome little boy!

    Happy Birthday from Doctor Mom and the folks in Cul-de-Sac!

  4. Amy said,

    Happy Birthday, Dakota!

  5. Skylers Dad said,

    Happy birthday Dakota, your Aunt rocks!!

  6. Just Dave said,

    Although not 100% correct, the word “Dakota” is Siouan for friend and this Dakota seems to fit that bill. May he have many happy birthdays.

  7. SushiBoy said,

    Happy B-day, stay true to those Eagles while your out in Arizona.

  8. Mr. Fabulous said,

    Way to go, Teri.

    I think he deserves an iPhone.

    Happy Birthday Dakota!

  11. Teri said,

    Lynda – I agree!

    Mixednut – Not at 11 years of age, he doesn’t.

    Dick – I know, I suck!

  12. Dick Small said,

    Yes, you do.

    Actually, Teri, I take that back. You’re a great Aunt (I’m sure), a great person, and a great blogging friend. You know, I was thinking, since Dakota isn’t going to receive the card and the cash in time for his birthday, which now makes it TOTALLY irrelevant, why don’t you just mail it to me? I’ll send you my address. Think about it.

    ok … so i have been stranded in the land of no internet … thought i was gonna die …

    but i had a tear in my eye … i can’t believe he’s 11 … seems like yesterday …

    … that being said … i’m sure he won’t mind getting it late … he is male and he’s 11 … money is money it all spends the same no matter when you get it

  16. "that girl" said,

    and thanks to everyone for his birthday wishes … i will let him read all of your wishes when he returns from the other spousa unit’s house

  17. "that girl" said,

    wait … i meant parental unit
