This morning i woke her up and gave her the first two gift ( hello Kitty armwatch and a Hello Kitty t-shirt ) then the kids went to school and i baked and made sanwiches and cleaned and organized a treasure hunt. Actually i started preparing the paper a couple of days ago, but then a nasty strep infection with very high fever stopped me badly. Then when they came back i gave her a pair of pink shoes and at 16:30 her friends arrived ( 10 kids ).
It has been a really nice party. Everybody was having fun, this period usually kids only have 'plastic parties' ( as we call them ) in McDonald's or similar, with someone shouting at them when to eat when to play when to open gift ( i hate those kind of parties ! )so today must have been really special for all of them, a good old birthday party, with a funny treasure hunt and them just time to play together at their pace and time.
Anyways, Gaid told me when i put her in bed that ' This has been the most beautiful birthday i've ever had ' and she made my day , oh well my day, my month, my whole year, she filled me with joy and love.
Gaia, my sweet child, i love you so so much
