We both were waiting patiently for her to wake up. As soon as we heard her stirring, we rushed in her room with her present, singing the birthday song through wet eyes. She smiled and acted all surprised when we gave her a present wrapped in pink Minnie Mouse paper. “For me, Mommy?!” It was from the three dollar bin at Target, a little princess set to practice lacing. I mean her mama was a school teacher for seven years and we have to work on those fine motor skills when we can. She opened the other present, a pink tutu, and you would’ve thought we gave her the world. She kept saying, “Thank you so much, guys! I wove it!” She put that tutu over her pajamas and I watched my THREE YEAR OLD walk down the stairs.
Today was filled with all of her favorite things.
