Tomorrow’s the big day, and I’m counting on Ella’s still-developing sense of object permanence to cover the fact that I bought her birthday present right in front of her this morning. Hopefully, she’ll forget all about it, and we’ll be good to go.
Somehow, in spite of the fact that we’ve largely kept The Girl sequestered in hospitals and our apartment this year, two of her most favoritest things in the world are kids and animals. So tomorrow afternoon should be a lot of fun, as we gather with her friends at a petting zoo nearby. Now, to make the cake!
