Happy Birthday Ella!

Forgive me friends, for I have sinned and it has been WAY TOO LONG since my last confession blog post. The past two weeks have been absolute madness at work. However! Though I may be failing on the blogging side, I’m proud to report my absolute winning on the mommy side. Yay!

Last week we celebrated Ella’s 5th birthday! Her number one birthday wish was for me to come to her school and bring her Minnie Mouse cupcakes to share with her class.


Her class has only 9 kids so these were more than enough


It was so fun to take the cupcakes to her kindergarten and watch her tiny face beam with joy. All her little friends gathered around her and sang Happy Birthday as she stood in the middle of the class, smiling from ear to ear. She was so happy!

Her next wish was for a birthday gift and for once, I knew exactly what to get her! Remember how I used to squash her in that tiny basin for our fake swim days at home? Well, those days are gone!


Look at her luxuriating in all that space


She’s been having an absolute blast with this inflatable pool. When I presented it to her she screamed for about 10 minutes and then shouted “BEST. GIFT. EVER!”

I felt like the world’s greatest mom. And that is the best feeling in the world!
