Birthday Girl?

This is the very first year that Sweet Cheeks has made any sort of comment to me about not having her birthday during a school year. (She's a July baby.) She just casually said one day, "I don't ever celebrate my birthday with my school friends, do I?" It wasn't a complaint at all. The girl has 4 siblings and 9 first cousins. I can't remember a year, other than the one in which she was born, that she had less than 2 birthday parties! Still, I decided to surprise her with some cookies to share with her class. I said nothing to her ahead of time. I came in and said, "First graders, there is someone in this room who has a July birthday. I thought I'd bring some cookies so you can help her celebrate her summer birthday." She had a big grin on her face and began scanning the room to see who it might be!!!
It finally dawned on her. It's me!
Happy almost 7th birthday, Sweet Cheeks!
Don't worry, the real parties begin very soon!

What a sweet thing you've done for her!! Hopefully it's a memory she'll cherish for many years to come...

My sister is not only a July baby also, she's a FOURTH of July baby! I remember being soooooo (irrationally) jealous that she'd get fireworks on her birthday every year!! (Then my March birthday began falling on Spring Breaks in the school district where we grew up. Payback, haha!)

You definitely win cool mom points for those cookies!
