Today is Joshua’s birthday! With great joy, anticipation, and excitement, we celebrate.
I am blessed to be in a clean, sunlit-slant kitchen first thing.
Todd has joined me and with him, three small sweet girlies.
I am bustling about beginning to set out supplies for our traditional poster making.
Eager eyed little girls are watching. Curious and, twitching to work with art supplies.
I tell them I am getting ready- for – today is Joshua’s birthday! He is eight years old, I say. I gather the pink art bin to return it to its shelf. And as I go…
A little voice pipes up…”Does that mean he gets a big plate?”
Oh, how we laugh in joy with our small, delightful girl.
In our house, when you turn ten (double digits) you move up to a grown up size dinner plate. Little eyes are always watching as this observant comment illustrates!
So, I explain to my girl, he is not double digits yet. Double digits gets the big plate.
I only have four in little plates now.
