Two things: my last few posts have been waaaaay too long. I am aware of that. So I’m going to write this in five minutes or less, without (much) editing.
Second thing: Fiona’s birthday party today was Wonderful. I had to capitalize it because it really just was. I know some of you may have been concerned after what I wrote about our many meltdowns on her actual birthday a couple of days ago. I kept thinking I should take down the post because it just sounds melodramatic, in retrospect. And toooo looong. But I do believe in blogging, or sharing ourselves, when we’re actually IN the moment, not just after we’ve had our epiphany about that moment. (Although those epiphany posts are nice sometimes, too.)
Anyway, off topic again. Just wanted to say we had a great time today, and all is well in our household. Looking over the pictures tonight, I feel so blessed that I can hardly believe it. My kids, and my husband, and my the rest of my family, and our friends, are just gorgoeus.
And Fiona and I were happy all day. No meltdowns!
If that isn’t a birthday miracle, I don’t know what is.
