Celebrate Monday: Today, You…

by Lain Ehmann on September 13, 2010

Today is your sixth birthday.

Today, you woke up and immediately began giggling with Kinsey. “Kinsey, did you know it’s my birthday?”

Today, you waited for us to come marching in, singing “Happy Birthday,” with all your presents.

Today, you were thrilled to open a huge pile of packages and find your very own Zhu-Zhu Pets inside.

Today, you put on your birthday crown over messy bed-head hair and danced around.

Today, you gave me a big hug and let me tell you how glad I am that I’m your mommy.

Today, you asked if you could choose what shoes to wear “…because it’s my birthday and I want birthday shoes.”

Today, you chose Dunkin’ Donuts for breakfast and had hot cocoa with a straw.

Today, you cried a little bit in line to go into school, but you were brave.

Today, you have decided that we will go to Chuck E. Cheese’s for dinner.

Today, you are still my baby.

Happy birthday, Callie. I love you more and more everyday.

P.S. This post is part of Simple Scrapper’s “Celebrate Monday” series.

    Happy Birthday, Callie! (unless it’s not, then “Happy Un-Birthday!”)

    Lain, THIS is why I scrapbook-to capture these kinds of moments. To show someone my love for them. To share part of myself with others. To have FUN!! Thanks so much for taking this scrappin’ journey with me.

    Love, Michelle
