Yesterday morning Maia and I were reading Richard Scarry'sÂ Best Word Book Ever! for what seemed like the 100th time this week. This time she pointed to the birthday celebration on the holiday page and said she wanted a chocolate cake and blue balloons.
I thought, well, she's been sick with the croup all week, is feeling yucky, and hasn't seen any of her friends in a while, maybe we should do something fun. And then I looked at the calendar and realized it was her half birthday! That settled it. I made a half chocolate cake and bought three blue balloons while she was napping.
Harry's been home sick as well, so we all celebrated Maia's half birthday together.
