Birthday Planning

And this is how we are planning Kyra's birthday:

Me: What do you want for your birthday?
Kyra: Um. A present, maybe? That would be good. Ya. Someone can bring me a present.
Me: What kind of present? Do you want anything special?
Kyra: No. I just want it to be wrapped.
Me: What do you want to do for your birthday?
Kyra: Um. Play in the front yard, maybe? You can play with me!
Me: Do you want to go anywhere for your birthday?
Kyra: No. I don't think so.
Me: What kind of cake do you want?
Kyra: A flower cake, maybe? I like flowers. Remember yesterday when I had my birthday at our other house and I had a butterfly cake?
Me: Yes.
Kyra: Well, I don't want a butterfly cake again, I want a flower cake.

There you go. She wants A present, to play in the FRONT YARD with ME and a flower cake. I think we can totally handle this.

I'm wondering how many more years we have of these carefree birthdays to look forward to.

There is nothing sweeter in life then the innocence of this child.


  1. She doesn't just want A present, it must be a wrapped present.

    I'm thinking you should just wrap a big empty box, that she can play inside afterwards.
    In the front yard.
    With you and a flower cake.
