Miss Blake turned five on July 24. It was a busy and action packed day. She opened up her Strawberry Shortcake cash register first thing in the morning. Big hit! Next on the agenda, zoo camp! After lunch Ommy came over to pick up the big girls and take them shopping at Barnes and Noble, they love that place. She opened up a few more gifts throughout the day. Hungry, Hungry Hippos was another favorite.
Zach came home early and we loaded up and went to Chuck E. Cheese, it was Blake and Kylie's first time. Blake was in a state of bliss the entire time. She rode every ride and played most of the games and then purchased a laffy taffy with her tickets. Kylie wasn't so sure about the strange rides, but she still had fun.
Blake always says that Joe T's is her favorite restaurant, she really only likes the chips and queso and the fun atmosphere. G Dad picked up dinner from Esparanza's so she could have her Joe T's queso.
We had a tiny little family celebration and she was so happy that the birthday song was sung just to her. It irked her that at their birthday party at the pool everyone said, "happy birthday Blake and Kylie, happy birthday to you." The white cake and strawberry shortcake she requested was scarfed. And her birthday wish...that Mommy will always be her friend. Sweet girl!
5 seems to be a magic number so far. The crying and whining drastically dropped off around five, she is finally wiping and doesn't need any bathroom help and can brush her teeth alone. She gets up and gets her own breakfast and brings me the remote so I can turn on the TV from my bed if I am too tired to get up yet. She is growing up so much and I can't wait to see how much she learns and grows this year in school. I'm still extremely glad we made the call to not send her to kinder. She's just not there yet. I think one more year at her current school is going to do wonders.
