A’s 10th birthday means that we’re all in double-digit territory now. Time skitters and rushes and I’m trying to savor the last bits of my little ones’childhood—I’m starting to head into a scarcity model, where cuddles and storytimes are too infrequent. Maybe we’ll pull out the E. Nesbit books again soon, though Sam Pepys’ diary around the dinner table has been pretty good.
10th birthday A:
Lemon meringue pie • Legos • Peter Pan • graphic novel • pizza • balloons • chocolate milk • rooftop • drizzle • 4 good friends • My Neighbor Totoro • Grandpas and Grandmas on the phone • Cinnamon Toast Crunch waiting on top of the cupboard for early birthday morning • thank you cards • “Happy Birthday” by Altered Images • kisses and hugs • the best treasure hunt ever, created by sister S.
