6 looks like box cupcakes and plastic frosting.
Because my girls prefer fake over scratch.
My soul aches about it.
6 looks like a fun birthday hat.
And ignoring the lice notice sent out the next day.
And special attention during morning music.
And taking a leap on the birthday carpet mat.
5 was a BIG year.
6 is going to be bigger.
Just ask her.
6 looks like handmade birthday cards from classmates.
And a special Croods drawing from Teacher Ian.
She’s currently a big fan.
Of the movie.
6 looks like Teacher Joanie lighting candles.
While sweet friends look on.
6 looks like musical chairs.
With daddy as a special guest.
And a very happy birthday girl.
6 looks like dinner at her favorite establishment.
Mostly for the sundae.
6 looks like party time!
Blue was the theme.
It’s her favorite color.
6 looks like water balloons.
Especially when it’s 80 degrees in April.
Summer, I think you might be early this year.
And we’re not complaining.
6 looks like little friends.
In fancy blue party dresses.
6 looks like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
And Annie’s fruit snacks.
And fruit salad.
And more plastic cupcakes.
6 looks like face painting.
Not sparkly butterflies and rainbows.
But Eep, the cavewoman from Croods.
My soul kind of aches about that, too.
6 looks like a fancy pinata.
Held up by an orange extension cord.
Which made it a little less fancy.
But the candy collectors didn’t care.
6 looks like special presents.
And patient onlookers.
6 looks like blue sprinkles.
And giant candles.
And an Eep face.
6 looks like sharing new toys with friends.
And an extra cupcake.
6 looks like blue balloons.
And running and jumping on the front lawn.
6 looks carefree and fabulous.
Happy Birthday, baby girl.
We love you.
