Dakota will be "5" on Sunday March 7th. Tonight she helped bake cupcakes for her classmates. With the help of a pampered chef tool, she put the icing on all the cupcakes and then added the sprinkles!!! She is very excited about her birthday! I just cannot believe how fast 5 years goes by. The changes in her from 3 to 4 and now to 5 are so drastically different. Sometimes I feel like we start a race at the crack of dawn, but somewhere in the middle of all the running is where you find the simple fun things. A smile, an understanding of each other and knowing you belong to each other. A hug that makes everything all better and sometimes backing off so your child can spread her wings and fly...it is after all a journey and it has been an amazing five years. Happy Birthday precious girl!
