A Valentine Birthday

Yesterday my five year old turned six.

She told me in the morning that she didn't feel any different. Our conversation went something like this.

Me: Good morning birthday girl. How are you this morning?

M: Mom.... why don't I look six? I don't think that I am any different today than before.

Me: I thought you started looking like six a couple of weeks ago. Your getting so big.

M: Maybe I will look more like six later.

It was a fun day, even if I was on the tail end of the flu. We had a full day planned but skipped part of it and changed some of it. In the end we skipped bible study and going out to lunch (a rare treat these days). We met up with our home school park group in the afternoon for a Valentine party. The kids had a blast, we sang happy birthday to my birthday girl, decorated cupcakes and cookies, passed out valentines and just had fun. There were over 30 kids and they all just love being together.

Then we ran off to get ready for ballet, drop of siblings, pick up a friend that was riding with us and we actually made it on time. After ballet we had to run and pick up our little one who had been with a friend all afternoon then go home and make dinner. Dinner ended up being at 6:30 by the time we got home and I cooked.

What a long day! Especially long for someone who is sick. I was in bed by 9:00 pm, completely exhausted. It was all worth it though. My six year old felt loved and maybe she even started feeling six.

So Happy Birthday Mikayla Joy. I hope you had an awesome day and will remember your day with a smile.

Happy birthday, Mikayla! I love your blog. You inspire me to get back to my own which has been much neglected. I'm a fellow WP user.
