When It's Your Birthday

When it's your birthday, your best friend Ellison comes over early in the morning in her pajamas...


...and you eat pancakes.


When it's your birthday, you get to have a balloon while you eat on the coffee table.


When it's your third birthday, you dress up like a princess and play with a ceramic tea set for the first time.



When it's your birthday, you and your friend do girly things. 


When you love your pretend tea party and you don't break any pieces, Mommy gives you a real tea party.


(This is a flowering tea.)



When it's the princess's birthday, her mommy might suddenly remember the princess dress hanging in her closet from Halloween 5 years ago. She might put it on and the girls might think it's so fun. The birthday girl might even give her a kiss. She might not take a picture of it, so you might have to take her word for it.

When it's your birthday, you get to play with water marbles!



When it's your birthday, you might get a little cranky and then skip your nap. But Mommy gives you grace because you're her baby no matter how old you get.

Love it! This, see, is foreign to me, for I'm raising princes. Four, to be exact, who don't "tea," but who Lego and play warriors going to battle and stealthy, powerful ninjas!

Thank you for this peek into girly-girl land. :)

Waving and grinning,

Aw! Precious! I miss when my girls would dress up like princesses! Enjoy it!!!! Actually my 9 year old still would if I hadn't given away all their princess dresses cause we're moving. I'll buy her new one's I'm sure, that fit her better now that she's bigger!!

Where is the picture of you in the princess dress?!! Hee, hee!! Looks like a very special day, indeed. When I saw "bibbidi bobbidi boo" at Disney, I couldn't help but think of your sweet momma. I can't remember where the name "Bibby" came from (Jackson?), but I so love it.
