Charlie asked us yesterday why she couldnt have a zoo In the house again for her bday like last year -(So we had explain that the sheer amount of poop produced by a llama, goat, pony, duck, goose, chicken, donkey, bunny outweighed her own body weight- and mom & dad dont own a shovel big enough for the house to ever be the same)so this year we just had cupcakes, playdo, dress-up ears and painted Target pumpkins. And it made us realize (thankfully) that kids dont really give a damn as long as they have sugar + friend time . // a happier kids makes for a happier life (love that she still likes to treasure hunt in thrift stores with me on her birthday- I pray when shes 16 shell still do that little tradition. Grateful for our friends young and old today!!
