This morning we all lay in bed and told the stories of your birth and talked about who you are. Your favourite part is always the bit when Indi came to visit you in hospital and we gave you your first bath in a huge Tupperware container. You love the bit about her slopping the big washer on your little newborn face. You swear you remember it happening.
After breakfast we decorated some chocolate bikkies for you to share with your class, in pretty pink of course.
Cooking, dancing, fairies, friends, pink and pretty, these are a few of your favourite things.
You opened your presents and your favourite was a bag filled with craft odds and ends; ribbons, lace, buttons, zips, elastic, sticky tape, pens..... You quickly took it all to the making table and started making.
All the way to school we sang Happy Birthday to you and you sang the loudest.
After school you'll have a play with some friends and have pancakes for dinner (your request).
I am always amazed at how perfect it is that you chose to be born right in the middle of spring so your birthday is at the height of blossom season.
Tomorrow we'll spend the day cooking and decorating and then on Sunday we'll have your cupcake party.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful six year old. I wish for you all the good things in the world and a little bit more.
