The morning started off with Kid peeking around the corner on her way downstairs and tentatively asking "5?". I concurred that she was in fact 5... and then she began chanting "I'm 5, I'm 5, I'm 5!". I could even hear her open the toilet lid and say "I'm 5" before she went potty. This is the first birthday where the age has meant something to her. Turning 5 to a preschooler is akin to turning 16 or 21. This is a BIG deal to her.
She started her morning with a little present opening.
She was pleased to receive "Cinderella" from her Grandad
Then we had a couple fresh baked Chocolate Croissants. Thank you very much Trader Joe's. These were un-freaking-believable... and only 320 calories. If you have a Trader Joe's near you... RUN there right now! Fantastic.
Kid figured since she was 5 she had graduated from preschool. I informed that she was wrong and dropped her off. Leaving me a LITTLE bit of time to decorate her cake. To be honest I'm not that pleased with how it turned out... but I was working with an obstacle...Like all younger siblings Baby is doing her best to trump Kid's birthday by not only walking but as of today waving as well.
I'm really trying to be less of a perfectionist and adopt a "good enough" is still good attitude. So with only one hour to decorate the cake this is it.. and let's be real... Kid is going to love it no matter how it looks.
After dinner we're going to go trick-or-treating leaving this stash unmanned...If there are any left I've decided I can have one of each for tomorrow.. that'll be 345 calories total. I still have cake for tonight ;)
Okay I'm off to go enjoy the Birthday Girl..
