Claire, congruent with her clearly new clothes, curiously full of curtsies, carefully considered creating some attention.
Claire asked for a cake with flowers and trees and a person and a table. Quite coincidentally when we were out picking up some presents we noticed a LEGO set she had asked for previously matched this description.
Claire built that structure herself and added it to the cake. She also did the sprinkles and icing. She was very proud.
Claire is five! Not to make it all about me, but, wow! Five years a parent. I can’t say it’s been smooth sailing, but I’ve enjoyed myself. I’m happy with my life choices.
Claire is magic. That kid is smart. A great sister. And a lovely human. I could not be prouder of her. She’s beautiful. And I’m lucky.
