She thinks she's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO big. A "little adult" as her preschool teacher puts it. She just can't wait to grow up!
She woke up early this morning, got excited about the balloons and donuts and the 'you are special today' plate that I set out the night before, hurried downstairs, flung open Claire's bedroom door, flipped on the light, and said, "Claire, wake up. It's my birthday!". I heard it all and groaned from my nice cozy warm bed.
Since we have church at 9am we all promptly got up and headed to the kitchen for sprinkle donuts and milk.
After which, Paige got to open a couple of gifts from us.
The first was a children's book about the human body, which Ben picked up from Costco. Paige is very interested in how things work, and since they'd already exhausted the only other anatomy related book we own (a children's book about the human skeleton), Ben was excited to get it for her.The second was a digital clock for her room.
Tonight, the birthday girl is going to get another gift from me: a little lesson on how to tell time and when she will be allowed to get out of her bed in the morning (7am). I hope she likes it.
Happy Birthday, Paige! We LOVE you!
