Murphy Dome Diaries

A journalist observes life in the far north.

So you say it’s your birthday

Cake? Check. Balloons? Check. Party hats? Check. I am almost ready for Lucky’s birthday party. Her play group should arrive any minute. I kept this party low-key so that it wouldn’t stress me out. Lucky probably won’t even notice it’s her birthday, although she has been having fun playing with balloons on the floor.

I miss my mom a lot today. I grew up poor but mom always made an extra effort to make Christmas and birthdays special. I want to do the same for my daughter.

    Happy Birthday Jade ~
    Your decorations look very festive and fun.
    You are probably still at the age when the box is more interesting than the toy inside.
    Can’t wait to meet you.
