With a daughter who is almost 20 years old I had forgotten what it’s like to experience the growth and changes of a little girl. The fun, joy and ultra feminism of it all swept over me yesterday when my middle daughter celebrated her 6th birthday.
Because of major changes happening to us as a family, Amareah and I decided (yes, I discussed it with the little lady) that we would have the family cupcake and ice cream celebration on the actual day of her birthday, which was yesterday, and plan the requested tea party for early February.
My daughter, who can be the biggest ray of sunshine, had been hopping around all week in excitement so when she came in from school we “got the party started.” She maturely requested a healthy after-school snack first – an apple – and sat at the table in anticipation of gifts, laughing and, of course, the sweet treats.
Notice the cupcake icing around their lips, which they’re oblivious to. :-)
Happy birthday to mommy’s beautiful sunflower, I look forward to celebrating many more girly birthdays with you. I love you!
Before you go (and after you comment – LOL) take a look at
Amareah’s birthday pictures from last year.
