Adeline wins the sweetest award for the day. When I went in to wake her up I told her I would be right back because I was going to get a pair of her jeans. She replied and said "ok, and besides, Happy Birthday!". She was very proud to be the first one to wish me happy birthday.
When I picked her up from school she was holding her lunch pail that was now my present box. All of her friends walked by saying "happy birthday", and so did her teacher. Adeline had indoor recess that day so she and two of her friends worked on my birthday present. I got my very own crown (with the number 33 on it), a flower bracelet, a balloon, and a very sweet card. Adeline went out of her way all day to wish me happy birthday, sing me happy birthday, and made sure Andrew obeyed (because it was my birthday).
It sure did do my heart good to see how intent Adeline was in making sure my day was special. I am very thankful for this little girl. Thank you Adeline for making Mommy's day absolutely wonderful. I love you.
