Murphy Dome Diaries

A journalist observes life in the far north.

The weeklong birthday extravaganza

Jade turned two and somehow the partying went on for a week.

It started with a birthday party with her friends at the hot springs.

Then I made cupcakes for her day care, where they sang happy birthday. Then there was the dinner at a Mexican restaurant when the waiters gathered around our table and belted out happy birthday.

Various gifts came Jade’s way all weekend, including a toddler exercise bike.

By the time her grandpa came to Murphy Dome for dinner and to wish her a happy birthday, we were tired of singing and just handed her the present, a faux bear skin rug.

Now I have to potty train the kid.

I hope she doesn’t think all birthdays go on for a week.

    A two year old who understands the concept of partying like a rock star – way to go, Amanda!
