What 6 Looks Like

photo 1

6 looks like box cupcakes and plastic frosting.

Because my girls prefer fake over scratch.

My soul aches about it.

photo 2

6 looks like a fun birthday hat.

And ignoring the lice notice sent out the next day.

And special attention during morning music.

photo 3

And taking a leap on the birthday carpet mat.

5 was a BIG year.

6 is going to be bigger.

photo 4

Just ask her.

6 looks like handmade birthday cards from classmates.

And a special Croods drawing from Teacher Ian.

She's currently a big fan.

Of the movie.

And Ian.

6 looks like Teacher Joanie lighting candles.

While sweet friends look on.

6 looks like musical chairs.

With daddy as a special guest.

And a very happy birthday girl.

6 looks like dinner at her favorite establishment.

Mostly for the sundae.


6 looks like party time!

Blue was the theme.

It's her favorite color.

6 looks like water balloons.

Especially when it's 80 degrees in April.

Summer, I think you might be early this year.

And we're not complaining.

6 looks like little friends.

In fancy blue party dresses.

6 looks like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

And Annie's fruit snacks.

And Cheese-Its.

And fruit salad.

And more plastic cupcakes.

photo 5 copy 2

6 looks like face painting.

Not sparkly butterflies and rainbows.

But Eep, the cavewoman from Croods.

My soul kind of aches about that, too.

6 looks like a fancy pinata.

Held up by an orange extension cord.

Which made it a little less fancy.

But the candy collectors didn't care.

Sorry, moms.

6 looks like special presents.

And patient onlookers.

photo 2 copy 3

6 looks like blue sprinkles.

And giant candles.

And an Eep face.

6 looks like sharing new toys with friends.

And an extra cupcake.

photo 4 copy 3

6 looks like blue balloons.

And running and jumping on the front lawn.

6 looks carefree and fabulous.

Happy Birthday, baby girl.
