Not much to say, really…it was rubbish. Grace was very lethargic and sleepy. She didn’t stay up past 5pm so she missed dinner (nothing special there just whatever I can puree) and cake. No presents. Had a faux birthday the next day and she didn’t want her cake (texture issues) and didn’t even look at her gifts as the boys opened them (the photos are deceiving – she didn’t even notice). Kind of thinking the day was more for them than for her because she really, truly, honestly couldn’t have cared less.
I can’t say that I was overly enthusiastic myself. Her birthday was a depressing day for me in all honesty. It’s hard to see your daughter ‘growing up’ without growing up at all. I actually feel a lump in my throat just typing that. I’d rather just pretend that she’s not getting older at all and birthdays don’t allow me to do that.
