**If you are looking for the Sugar Bolus winner....Check back Friday evening! I'll choose one after I get home from work! **
She wanted to go to dinner at "the pizza place" with Mimi and Gaga. After pizza, (and beating Gaga at air hockey) we went home for cupcakes and presents!
On Sunday, we celebrated with our family and friends. Sweets would have invited every person that she had ever met before if I had let her! And she tried - but I had to reign her in.
She had a great time at her party! It was a Cinderella party (to the dismay of the boys attending) complete with "pin the crown on Cinderella"! D even behaved itself rather well!
There is a bakery here that I adore... I ALWAYS get cake there. But when we walked into Walmart the other night and Sweets saw THIS...
Game Over. THAT was what she wanted.
Of course, the Walmart closest to us did not have the kit. So, after calling around to EVERY store in the area, I FINALLY found it (at a store that required my parents to put their lives in a bit of danger in order to pick it up!). And she was one happy little girl!
The best part was her wish.
After everyone sang to her and she blew out her candles, we told her to make a wish.
She leaned in to me and whispered, "Know what I wished for?"
"What?" I said.
"I wished that we could be in Florida and that I could meet Cinderella and see her castle."
"That is a wonderful thing to wish for!" I said.
She wished for something that every five year old girl SHOULD wish for.
She did NOT wish for a cure.
And I'm glad.
Let ME wish for the cure. Let it be the wish I make every birthday, every time I toss a coin in a fountain, and every time I see a shooting star.
My wish for HER is that she can be a "normal" little girl...
And on her birthday, her wish showed that she is just that!
