Bea turned 5 years old this week. (Deep breath.... just realized my kids are now 5 & 10. Five fingers & ten fingers. One hand & two hands. My little five & dime.)
When I asked Bea what kind of cake she wanted, she replied: "I want a yellow bumblebee cake. And I want his hand in the air, doing a high five. And I want a flower in the other hand."
Well, I got half of it right. I managed to make a high-fiving bumblebee, but I forgot to put a flower in the other hand. And Bea noticed it right away. "MOM! You forgot the flower!"
Geez. Some clients are so hard to please. ; )
Other than that minor detail, Bea kept saying "This is the best birthday, EVER!" She got to go to Build-a-Bear with her daycare friends, Sophia & Miss Francis, where they picked out matching bunnies. She got to spend the day playing with her Grandma Nette. And she opened up present, after present, after present from her many aunts & uncles. So yeah, it was pretty much the best birthday EVER for our sweet Bea.
