Hello March! February was this non-stop hazy cloud of sickness for us. It made its rounds, trickling from one child to the next. We had four birthday celebrations last month. Madelyn turned 12 and Lana hit double digits with her 10th birthday! Our nephew/cousin turned one and my brother had his 35th. Lana was sick for hers but she made it up the following weekend with a sleepover party with her friends. Unfortunately, the sickness had finally hooked its claws into me by Valentine's Day, lasting the entire weekend. That weekend marked the 17th anniversary of the first date my husband and I ever went on. We celebrated with me in bed nauseous with a migraine. Pretty sexy, I know.
Tomorrow, my third baby turns 7! She's been counting down the days for over a week. Each day she would recalculate and let me know how many days were left. We have ladybug plates and decorations with tacos on the dinner menu. Family will be joining us to celebrate tomorrow night with cake and ice cream and fun. I hope she has the best birthday a seven year old can have!
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations.
