A couple of Claire's aunties came down for her birthday. And they are all easily excitable, Claire included, so she was allowed to open a present when she woke up that morning. She regularly wears long socks on her arms to play Elsa, so she was super happy to get her own pair of actual gloves. Actually "happy" is an understatement. Then her dad wanted to take her out to breakfast before school. Hotcakes, you say? Don't mind if I do.
We did presents and cake too. It was a great time, maybe even my favourite birthday of hers we've had yet. And since I wasn't going all out with a big-ass party, I actually bought her a couple of presents. A giant pillow and an emoji hat she saw at Walmart. I wrapped them in Spiderman wrapping paper so she could tell which ones were from me.
