Birthday Thoughts

Phia woke up to birthday balloons floating around the house. Her reaction was classic- so filled with amazement and excitement. I had a kind of epiphany in which I realized that I remember five very well- I can recall the details of my fifth birthday like the cake we ate, the games we played, and the confetti that fell out of the cards. It reminded me that I might have to step it up a bit, so Phia will have those same special feelings when she thinks back to her early birthdays. I wonder what little things she will remember- the outfit she picked out, the endless rain storm, the Ikea lunch she requested, or all of the sweet messages, cards and gifts she received from friends and family.
