Lj's 5th Birthday
One morning I asked her why she was so excited about her birthday and she told me she couldn't wait to see her cake and eat it! Never once did she talk about what she would like for her birthday. Over and over we discussed, the cake, the craft, who was coming, what we would eat and what we would play.
Lying in bed the night before I chatted to her about turning 5 and her little lip began to wobble as she suddenly realised the reality of saying goodbye to age 4 and stepping into a new year, that of being 5.
Perhaps not as much as Lj but I too have spent many hours thinking and planning the birthday. It is a chance for me to try out lots of creative things.
