February 24th

Five years ago today I had my baby girl! I can't believe it has been 5yrs. I'm leaving work early to go and get some balloons and party plates. We're combining their birthdays again this year, since they are only a few weeks apart. He will be four, I won't be able to stand that either.

Her birthday wish list was a cat, a car (yes, no typo. at 5 she wants a car), a TV with a remote for her room and rollerskates. LOL. We're taking them on Saturday to the zoo as a surprise and I think on Sunday I'm going to make some kind of gooey facial/pedicure stuff and treat her to a homeade spa experience. She loves the girly stuff.

So no real news, just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my daughter. I saw this quote once that said having children is like having your heart walk outside of your body for the rest of your life. Or something to that effect. Its moments like this that I totally get that. She was so happy today to have her special day. It almost makes me cry to see her so happy sometimes, and then other times I'm tearing my hair out because she is drivig me crazy! Such is life!!


  1. Awww! Doesn't it just fly by!? Happy Birthday, little one!

  2. I love the quote about having children. So true!

  3. Happy birthday to your baby (and yes, at 5, she's still your baby). I'm dreading my daughter's 5th birthday in June...and her starting kindergarten...graduating from high school, getting married...

  4. I totally understand - my daughter turned five last September. They seem so grown up.
