on birthdays

Today the little girl told me and I quote, "When I get bigger, when I get to be a big girl, when I am bigger I'm going to get in my car and drive to the store and buy Aunt Whitney a birthday cake. I'm going to drive my car to Harris Teeter and buy Whitney a cake."

There has been much anticipation regarding her upcoming birthday. She even told the doctor one day last week when the doctor mentioned her big birthday coming up, she said, "And I want to invite YOU to my birthday party!" Well, today we were talking about the two little boys I keep in the afternoons who both have birthdays this week. She said, "So ______'s birthday is after mine?" and I said, "No, first it's _______'s birthday and then it's ___________'s birthday and then it's mommy's birthday and then it's your birthday next." To which she replied, "Yes and I'm going to eat lots of cake! And I'm going to have a cakey face!"

Actually, as I write this Julianna's sitting at the fireplace yelling up the chimney at the top of her lungs, "SANTA!!! SANTA CLAUS!!!!" I don't know which is more exciting - Christmas or birthdays.

That is so sweet of her to think of me and to buy me a cake. I can't wait to celebrate her birthday and get a cakey face with her!

Sounds like you're going to have a busy week, and Jules is planning to keep Harris Teeter in business! Happy early birthday to both of you! :)

I wonder if she's singing "Happy Birthday" to her Mommy today... or just begging for cake.
