A to Z: Icing on the Cake

Today was my daughters fourth birthday. She had an exciting weekend seeing her friends at another birthday party on Saturday. Then on Sunday I took her to a farm where she could play and pet some cows. She also got to pet a great big pig. She called the critter that felt like steel wool soft, and she calls my stubble itchy go figure.

Today  I tied up loose ends at work and went shopping for my daughter. Building blocks, stickers, tattoos, wood puzzles, books, plush animals, balloons, all ended up on the list. She is at any easy age to shop for, she just wants everything.

The evening wrapped up with dinner and play time at Chuck E. Cheese. Thanks to a weekend of television on a road trip the advertisements convinced her to go there for her birthday. I like the fact her TV normally consists of  Netflix and videos.

I think your daughter is lucky to have a dad like you. Lovely.

You're a nice mom for bringing your daughter to Chuck E Cheez.

When I was a kid, my parents told me all the Chuck E Cheezs had closed so they wouldn't have to bring us anymore. They couldn't stand the noise.

Now my own daughter is telling everyone she's going to have her next birthday at Chuck E Cheez.

It sounds like your daughter had a grand time and got lots of great presents. I'm trying to figure out what to do for my 2 year old's birthday. Luckily, he's still at that age where something simple will do.
