Five Years Old

Caroline turned five years old today. Five feels like a big one to me- somehow she really is now a big kid...

Many people have asked what we are getting Caroline for her big birthday. We did get her a big girl scooter and a few other fun toys... However, what she really wanted is a bit funnier...

Repeatedly, when asked what she wanted for her birthday, Caroline responded, "Combos (the pretzel and cheese snack), gatorade and flip flops." No joke. This is really and truly what the child wanted for her birthday. We avoid high fructose corn syrup in our house so we don't have a lot of the 'cool' snacks or drinks- apparently, combos and gatorade lead her list of missed favorites. And the flip flops... I have said no to flip flops for years now- Caroline is just not the most coordinated kid out there. Literally, she fell the other day, flat on her stomach from a standing position. I just have not felt like flip flops were in our best interest. Much like the princess towel, however, I have decided that it is time. My mom arrives this afternoon with the most special present of them all- the flip flops. We will hope there is more flip than flop.

Happy Birthday Big Girl!!!
