October Thirty One-th

7 years ago

Just had a conversation with a small friend.  A very close friend.  She reported that the first baby tooth has come out.  First tooth fairy payoff received this morning. Her “Belle” princess costume is ready for trick or treating.  Birthday party invitations were just sent out for a November date.  When asked about so much going on, the five year old said that yes, she is very excited.  She said, “Today is October thirty  Tomorrow is the thirty one-th and after that is November and that’s my birthday year.”

You go, girl.  Celebrate all over the place.  Stretch it out as far as it'll go. Make it last, and I’ll join the party in progress. Soon enough the world  sends us reminders about real life, some of them the distinctly non-celebratory kind.  So let’s get started on your birthday right away and keep it going all year.
