... my oldest baby turns 5!
I can't believe it.
I'm super excited about it though. Bill and I have decided to put her (and Isabelle) in dance class for her birthday. So yesterday I made her a tutu. It was so fun and easy to make and looks better than most tutus we've ever gotten. We'll get her a few more dance-related things for her to open at her birthday party Saturday, but she'll get the tutu tomorrow.
The only problem is when to give it to her. Bill will only see her in the morning... I'll only see her in the evening. So one of us misses out on the fun of seeing her open her gift. Maybe I'll let him give it to her since I'll be going to school to bring cupcakes. That's a tough sacrifice...
There is another kid in her class with the same birthday. The teacher sent home a calendar with all the birthdays on it, so for a few days I fretted about this. What if we both send cupcakes? Should I ask the teacher what to do? Then I decided to stop worrying about it. I did send a note to school to let the teacher know what I was planning, though.
And I got the other mom's phone number back so we could coordinate what we were doing.
So I called and we decided to split cupcake duty - she'll bring 8 boy cupcakes and I'll bring 8 girl cupcakes. We're both bringing drinks (I wasn't counting on that) and she informed me she bought Olivia a birthday present.
So off to the store we went after school.
It'll be fun. I'll get to spend a little time celebrating her birthday with her friends.
I just have to figure out what to do with the other 16 cupcakes.... hope my coworkers are hungry...
