Last week we rode the roller-coaster of life. We started with a birthday, said goodbye to a family member in the middle and finished with another birthday. This is a busy time of year for birthdays and anniversaries for us. Despite the sadness this week, it was very important to make Mrs Albertine's 7th birthday a happy one. Perhaps we went overboard to compensate for the week we've had. The "Party with a few friends" expanded to fourteen. And dinner at our local, which seemed like such a good idea earlier in the week, descended into an evening of managing over-tired and emotional children while we frantically gulped down the red.
Happy birthday my sweet girl.
And the best part? No more booster seat! Hooray!!
