Today is The Girl's 5th birthday. I'm not quite sure how that happened. I know everyone says it goes fast, but this is more like lightening speed. I swear she was just learning how to walk.
We're having a party for her this weekend, but you can't just let the "real" birthday go by unnoticed. We've got family coming tonight for pizza and cupcakes. And I made her a fun birthday lunch. As I'm sure it is with most little girls, she's into all things princess right now. So a princess lunch it shall be.
The head is just a peanut butter and jelly sammie. Fruit leather for her hair, eyebrows and mouth. A sprinkle nose. Candy eyes. Bananas around the rim. And the crowning glory, hahaha, a white chocolate tiara. They'll be making an appearance on her cupcakes, but I stole one for her lunch.
Here's the birthday girl's princess lunch on her plate:
When I sat it down in front of her, the first thing she said was, It's a princess!
Score one for The Mom.
Happy Birthday, Em.
I love you too much.
