Happy Birthday Emily!

My oldest Daughter is 5 years old today! What a milestone! In the fall, she'll start Kindergarten!!!! In about an hour, the girls will get a bath, then Em and I will go to school, where I will be a special visitor for the whole day! (2 3/4 hours LOL)

It's crazy to think that this girl is only 5. Some days she is so smart and mature beyond her years. For instance, she was awake when I got up, sitting patiently on the couch watching TV when I came down this morning. She was patient waiting for her "surprise" of presents. She didn't know, and she was patient to wait for it. She was polite and said "Thank You" to Me, Hubby and little sister.....AMAZING!

We gave her a few presents this morning, though her big presents she'll get at her party on Saturday. She got some new Strawberry Shortcake bedding and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on DVD. Then me, her, Hubby and Kaity decorated cupcakes for her class for snack today.

Not an hour later she's throwing a fit because she wants to open said bedsheets and strew them across the house.....ah well......

Today is her day. We'll have what SHE wants for dinner, and although her party isn't until Saturday, we'll make sure she knows today is special.

I cannot believe I am the mother of a 5 year old. It just seems so.....surreal.....
