Ahhh, To Be Five Years Old...

We're celebrating Clara's 5th birthday tomorrow, complete with a "horsie" cake, bandanas for all the little cowpokes, and a big brown horse pinata that we'll beat the stuffin' out of! It's going to be a blast...I mean a hoot...I mean YEEHAW! What is cowgirl-speak for "a great time", anyway?

Whatever it is...we're gonna have it!

Clara was watching me decorate her cake tonight and was so sweet.

She said, "Mommy, I sure do wish it could be my birthday every day."

"Yeah, that would be somethin' alright!" (Read: "your mommy would most certainly go crazy alright!")

"I'd have cake and presents every single day then!"

"Yup...where on earth would we put them all?" (see what you've done to me, Org Junkie?!)

"I dunno"

(pause for deep, contemplative 5 year old little girl thoughts)


"Yeah sweetie?"

"I wish it could be my birthday every day AND that I never had to get a shot. Ever. If I didn't want to. That's what I wish."

(pause for mommy to contemplate what in the world makes a 5 year old little girl tick)

"Yeah baby girl...that would be nice, wouldn't it?"



"I gotta booger. I'm gonna go blow my nose."

*End special moment shared between 5 year old and her mommy*

I'll be sure to update with party pictures tomorrow. I need all sorts of pats on the back for the cake I made anyway. But you have to promise me something...you can't hold the carrots against me forever! You'll know what I mean when I post pictures.

My, my. I'm just all sorts of mysterious tonight, eh?!
