Yes, it's her birthday

I'm sure some of you have checked in here today, looking for something about Little Bird's birthday. Well, I don't have much to say (I know, right?!) so I'm going to let you re-read last year's Happy Birthday Little Bird post.  I still feel and think all the things I wrote last year. This year is a bit harder, so I have a bit less to say. Plus, haven't I said it all already? So here are some pictures from Little Bird's big day...
It was pretty painful getting through that cake thing. But, I baked it (yes, it's GFCF), so we were gonna blow out the candles and smile for the camera, dammit!! We got through the first "happy birthday to you"and she started screaming, so I put the cake in front of her and let her blow out the candles.
I am not in favor of having huge parties for kids, so I usually don't throw them. Plus, it's HARD to have a party and fake happy around all those typical kids and their typical parents. I fucking hate kids birthday parties. I usually RSVP no. The other thing is, I wouldn't know when to stop inviting. You have to invite the whole preschool class (18 kids), plus if you invite this kid, you have to invite that one and that one. Before you know it, you're having a way-too-big-for-a-5-year-old party. The other reason not to throw a big party is this. But, I digress.

I heard once that you shouldn't invite more kids than the age of the child the party is for. I like that rule. But it's easy for us to keep it small, we don't know that many kids.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the day more. Happy Birthday, Brodie! I hope she enjoyed her cake.
