It was Lexie's fifth birthday yesterday.
Five years ago, she sped into the world. (If you want to read her amazing birth story, it's here.)
And yesterday, ffter she opened all her pressies (a whole load of Barbie and a whole load of craft stuff...) I asked her what she would love best for her dinner.
And she tells me:
"A little strawberry. A little bit of salami. Some cheese please. And a cracker. That is all, Mumma."
And so that is exactly what we had. I threw a few scotch eggs and some cherry tomatoes onto the plate for good measure, and dinner was prepared in less that five minutes...and it was delightful.
And then of course, a little birthday cake to finish it all off.
It was a lovely lovely day. I love her so so much.
What family birthday traditions do you have? And which favourite dinner do you or your kids choose?
