Peanut Butter turns five today. She will be headed toward kindergarten next month and I cannot believe it. It has been a hard week for me, I think a lot of it has to do with not having a "family" birthday. I tried to work something out with J, but it never came to. So what do I do I go overboard and over compensate.  I had the tea party on Sunday and yesterday before we met Nana for a birthday dinner I took her for a pedi to make her toes cute.

Then we walked by Claires and I though  hey maybe we should get her ears pierced. I asked J if he minded even though I knew he didn't since he wanted to do it a while ago. I asked Peanut Butter if she wanted it done and she said yes.

She did pretty good. They shot both ears at once, she cried a little when it was over, but she seems pretty happy with them.

We had dinner with my Mom and her sister. PB slept through the first 20 min or so on my lap. Apparently I wore her out at the mall. But she perked up and opened some presents.

This morning we have birthday morning. Peanut Butter opened presents:

She was pretty excited, I got her to Playmobil room sets to replace most of the Playmobil stuff that has been left on the floor and stepped on, destroying them. Hopefully now that she is a little older she will take better care of the stuff. She does love playing with the stuff though.

We did Birthday pancakes since PB doesn't like cake.

It was hard when her Daddy picked her up today. I know he should get part of birthday too, but I admit, I cried after she left.

I cannot get over how grown-up she looks and has become! The haircut, the pierced ears, the toenails . . . what a doll! I am so, so glad you had such a wonderful day with her, and I can only imagine how hard it was to send her with her dad at the end of it. I hope 5 is a terrific year and that she loves kindergarten!
