My oldest daughter turns 6 tomorrow and she had a great birthday celebration on Sunday. After 9 months, 23 hours of labor and 1 C-Section she came into the world on an unusually sunny February day in Portland. She sunbathed next to the window in the hospital room.
She wanted rollerblades for her birthday and chocolate cake. She initially was going to do bookmaking for her party but I suggested maybe drawing? And she said, “painting” so that’s what we did. I always make cakes but they turn out lopsided and I run out of frosting. This one looked fairly good in the end because I only did one layer. The kids didn’t actually make a mess painting at all and they each did one or two paintings that were pretty much dry by the time the party was over.
