Our formal celebration will be this Saturday, but we went shopping yesterday and she opened her presents from me. She said she wanted to shop at "The Sparkle Store". I needed to ask a few questions about that. She wanted to buy sparkles, so of course, that would necessitate a trip to the Sparkle Store. Duh, Mom! She wanted to buy jewels, and after a bit of investigative work on my part, and some internet sleuthing, it seemed like a big "Bucket of Bling" was in order. We went to Michaels, and got a bag of jewels, some Crayola Pip Squeak glitter glue, a crown, and some markers that blend three colors together. Thank goodness for those 40% off coupons, because bling ain't cheap, people.
Today, I took her to school to celebrate with brownie cupcakes from Costco, personalized with homemade frosting and pink edible sand. I got to stay for circle time and sang some songs featuring the "ell" and "unch" family of words. Laura got to use the pointer for her classmates. I walked out of her school with such a huge smile on my face, and I had a nicer demeanor to my own students, and the good mood still is with me as I write this.
