Happy Birthday, Honey Pot!

"I don't feel like a five year old, Amma".

"Oh? Hm. How old do you feel?"

"I still feel like a four year old."

"I see. What do you think being a five year old feels like?"

"Umm... I don't know. It is not like a four year old I think. But I still feel like a four year old now, even though I already had my five birthday."

I wanted to tell her how much I understand the feeling...

Some of her friends came over to celebrate her birthday. We played some games; worked on some small craft projects; decorated our own butterfly cakes, made Strawberry mice and Ants on a Log (Snack made with celery, peanut butter and raisins) and ate as much as we wanted; and we ran around the backyard with our tissue paper faery wings... and stashed our prizes and crafts in fabric goody bags.

Then, to wind down the birthday weekend, Appa took the family to play by the Clackamas River in McIver State Park. Ana was the River Path Faery who, as the name suggests, would lead us on the path to the river, which she did.

A simple dinner of home-garden mint pooris with dal, and potatoes au gratin rounded out the dinner. The poories go down much faster when shaped like flowers and hearts and butterflies, naturally :)

Happy Birthday to Ana. It looks like a lovely birthday. I love how the kids created their own snacks - the strawberry mice are so cute.
We had a similar 'age discussion' just before my daughter turned 3. She was very worried she'd no longer be herself.

Kristine:: Thanks! I am so glad you stop by, it cheers me up :) Kids these days are so self-aware, don't you think? I am amazed at your daughter talking to you about her age at 3... they are growing up too fast in today's world! God bless them!
