Today she is 5 years old. She is just a little delight and brings such wonderful joy to me and the family. Madeline is such a sweet considerate little one already very sensitive to people's feelings. She's always been that way. She is one to say "I don't want to hurt your feelings....but I don't prefer cooked carrots". She is so much like her father. I love watching them together.
Today she will have a swimming party at her nana's with her little friends. I had wanted to see her for her birthday (we'll get together for a little family one as well). Things are a little "skeltered" around here right now. Is skeltered a word? Maybe not but it sounds like a good word. Geoff called me while I was at the mall last night and we decided to have a last minute pre-birthday dinner celebration. We went to a place called "Crabby Joes".
It was a beautifully special time. Our dinner was lovely and the whole couple of hours there were a delight. Madeline opened her gifts from me and she was just so very sweet. I used my digital and took a couple of precious videos as well of her and her dad. Geoff is dressed very casual vacation style because he is on vacation and this was last minute.
She watched in bewilderment as they sang Happy Birthday to her and brought her a sundae with a candle. This was the first time she'd seen this and she didn't quite know what to think about it. When they were finished she asked us whey they did that? She said she was rather "annoyed" with them. I think she was actually feeling a slight bit embarrassed. You know how we get?
I hope you have a lovely day..... Judi xoxo
