A Touch of Birthday Magic

While my mom is away on business (which she thinks sounds so cool) you’ll just have to hear from her daughter Lauren. I’ll try not to bore you with my way of writing because I know it isn’t nearly as fun as my mom’s.

Well today is my niece, Angie’s birthday, and she has just turned five. I got a call this morning from her because she received the birthday package I sent, which had a pair of fairy wings and a matching hair bow. Angie was so excited and she danced around the house in them with her little sister who has a matching pair. For her birthday party she wants magical fairies and dragons as the theme. Amy asked me to draw a cute invitation to fit the unique them, and here are the results.

Birthdays are an incredible mark in one’s life, and for a child its a chance to shower them with the love they deserve and the magic that makes it worth while.

Here is a fun little story that seems to serve both my purposes today.

I was substituting in my own son’s kindergarten classroom, and it happened to be his birthday. He told one of the children, and she asked me, “Is it really his birthday?” I replied, “Yes, he was born six years ago today.” The little girl looked at me in amazement. “You mean he was BORN on his BIRTHDAY? What a lucky boy!”
