Mommy Moments…And She Turns Five

My daughter celebrated her 5th birthday in school, as it happened to fall on a school day. She wouldn’t have wanted it any other way, because she didn’t want to miss partying with her school crush. Yes, my heart skipped a beat when she told me she fancies one of her boy classmates. Ay, caramba! Well, I better save my sentiments on that for another post.

She's the one at the far right.

We just had food delivered to her school. The kids enjoyed the loot bags which I’ve oh so painstakingly prepared…Ok, that may have been a slight exaggeration :). They especially loved the Dora-topped cupcakes which were arranged to form the number 5.

Turning a year older is always a joyous occasion. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 8 or 80. Birthdays are a constant reminder to us of the gift of life. It’s a time to have your cake and eat it too! :)

This is my first ever entry to Mommy Moments.

  1. My Playmate Lexie says:

    […] Lexie (yes, that girl beside me) and I played with my Sylvanian Home and stuffed toys. We crawled under the bed. We laughed and screamed and fought! hihi. Lexie pulled my favorite puppy stuffed toy while I pulled the end of the leash with my teeth. Her mommy told her to stop pulling, but she kept on pulling. I got irritated, but I guess that’s how kids play. hihi. And then we played again. […]
