Another month long gone and only one to go before you turn seven.
In a few days your Daddy leaves for a long time. We are all feeling overwhelmed by it. I think that I have done a decent job of being there for you, but I know that Sunday will be the hardest day of all. Or maybe Monday or Tuesday when you realize he really is gone. I see Sunday as hard, because my tears are so close to the surface that I am positive that I will spend the day crying. I want to snuggle on the couch with you and Gwen while we all think safe thoughts for Daddy.
For your birthday this year you want your room repainted. I have decided that we will also move you into a slightly larger room. I will empty the room first, then paint it, and move you into it. We are painting it pink and purple with lime green accents. You want it “fairy-ish” so I will try. Currently the room is the same cardboard brown the downstairs it. I am so tired of brown!
We are planning your birthday party, and you are so excited about it. We are going to have a few girls from your class over, and have a fancy tea party. I want to have you all dress up, eat little sandwiches and drink tea (or apple cider) in cups we will buy at the thrift store. Then as a party favor every one will get to keep their cup and take it home to drink their own tea in later. It seems like such a perfect way to celebrate your seventh birthday.
