Now, for all of you who are acquainted with Mimi, it will come as no surprise that her sixth birthday was filled with highs and lows. Ultra-highs and ultra-lows, as is par for her course, really.
We started with breakfast. Hootenannies are her favorite (HIGH!), but then Olivia remembered--darn her--that the ward party was that morning, and I had already made the executive decision I would not be dragging my four children to a breakfast/service project, so Mimi was sad about not seeing her friends (low). But then Daddy got to come home since call was slow (HIGH!), but the two big girls had forgotten about Mimi's motion sickness "issue" and had played Spin 'Til You Drop in the family room, and Mimi was pale and clutching a puke bowl for an hour (low).
Since the highs and lows come with Mimi's territory, I think we had a more than satisfactory birthday. I just can't believe she's six!
