Born 6 weeks early she was just a little bit of a thing, you could carry her all day and not notice. She was the sweetest thing I’d ever seen, and it was often that thought that kept me going all through the screaming-colic days. Now she’s the tallest kid in her class, all gap-tooth smile, mis-matched socks, and stubbornness. And still my favourite thing to see everyday.
Of course, something as monumental as turning 7 deserves a celebration! We had cupcakes with her school friends one day last week.
And since Grandma, Nanny and Uncle were coming for dinner yesterday, she told me a cake was in order. A chocolate cake. With pink icing, which she wanted to decorate herself. Who could say no?
A little over the top, you’re thinking?
Rest assured – it is WAY over the top. And that’s exactly what makes it great!
