All this week, visit GeekMom for posts about birthdays. From parties to personal experiences, our posts will get everyone excited about marking the anniversary of someone’s birth.

Today’s start of Birthday Week, April 16, coincides with a special day for a couple of us GeekMoms. It’s both my birthday and the birthday of Nicole Wakelin! I’ve now had 39 revolutions around the sun, and I look forward to my 40th being particularly interesting.

Enjoy this week’s posts, and be sure to comment on this post, or any birthday post, about your special birthday memories or plans. What have you done for yourself or your kids that worked, or didn’t work? Did you throw any effective surprise parties, or attend any spectacularly disastrous events? We want to hear about them.
