Birthday cake

Erin is under the weather today: runny nose and teary eye. She was congested as she slept last night. It's unusual that she's sick at all really. So I tried to be extra attentive to her today. She walks up to me speaking her two-speak and I ask, "What did you say?"

Big blue eyes look deeply into mine and she says, "Birthday cake, please, Mommy?"

I'm glad there's a back-up stash of cupcakes in the freezer. I pulled out the last two, topped them off with whipped cream and a cherry each. You'd have thought it was the real deal. She was excited and happy.

"Happy birthday," I said. I hope I am mindful to celebrate these lives every day.
