My youngest turned 3 today.
I don't know if I like that.
I like my kids birthdays.
And I like that i was able to celebrate her 3rd birthday.
My last baby never got the chance to turn 3, you know.
I like babies.
And a three year old is not a baby.
My mom had a tradition of using these antique green, square dishes for every birthday when I was a kid. Thats all we used them for. Never for guests - only birthdays. We called them the "birthday dishes". When I got married, I used them for my bridal table, and my dear mom gave me a 2-place setting of the prized green dishes. She has found and bought another place setting for ech child that is born into my family. I am carrying on the tradition - using them for every birthday in our house.
We love this kid. She is such a ball of fun! And a blessing from God - we're so grateful for her in our family.
