Getting Big











I wasn't going to do anything for Scrunch's birthday today. Christmas was a month ago and I mean, really? Who remembers their second birthday? I went back and forth and back and forth ultimately deciding at the last minute to turn Craft Day into Come Eat Cupcakes Day.

I get to do the cupcake thing when a host of women would give anything to have kids to bake cupcakes for. I get to glue bows on cowgirl hats (that she will refuse to wear) until hours after I'd rather be in bed because that's the chance I was given. I get the Christmases. The Birthdays. I get to be the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. I get the first day of school, Halloween, and I get every day in between. There's another woman who will get none of these. Instead, she gave.

Happy Birth day Birthmom!

Thanks for being you.

Happy Birthday Kensley! I'm glad you got our package. There is no better way to spend a birthday than with friends and cupcakes :)

Love it! What a perfect way to put it. Kensley is such a doll and was definitely meant to be your daughter but that doesn't mean there weren't necessary sacrifices along the way.

Oh and btw, I'm still salivating at the thought of those cupcakes. Please send me the recipe! Or on second thought, maybe you shouldn't!
