Birthday Shivers - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Birthday Shivers
Bean is already showing her newfound maturity. When she got up in the middle of the night for a drink of water, I tried to steer her away from the dining-room table. But she insisted on sitting at her usual place. A number of her presents were arrayed in front of her. She contemplated them while drinking her water, then went straight back to bed.

She woke up this morning and excitedly declared to us, "I'm seven!," then proceeded calmly to the table. So far she has only opened one present. Luckily, it was the one she was most expecting to get. It's Shiver from Barbie: The Magic of Pegasus. This instantiation makes baby gurgles and has cheeks that light up with a rosy glow. But it's nothing compared to the glow on our daughter's face.

It's going to be a very good day. We head up to her school in the early afternoon to distribute Krispy Kreme doughnuts to her class. Then, after I'm done teaching, I pick up Kim's best-friend and Skylar's favorite relative-by-choice, Sami. Once we arrive home, there will be cake and more presents with her grandparents and possibly others. Eventually, Kim and I may even find time to commemorate our wedding anniversary by doing something fun together.

Happy Birthday to the Bean! And of course happy anniversary to you and Kim as well.

I know I can't say Bean is cute but can I say the look of her is utterly, breathtakingly delightful in this morning pic? Will she let that one slide by with a smile?

"Delightful" is not a problem!
