My birthday evening was great. The next day, Anthony spent most of the day cleaning the house
I spent my time practicing my craft. We have agreed that it is time to move. The girls are getting older and will need room to practice their craft and my supplies are spilling all over our bedroom. Sometimes I envy Anthony, he is superior in his powers that he doesn't need things like wands, cauldrons or books.
That evening Anthony sent me to the store to pick up purple garlic and orange beets. While I was gone, he made a cake, from scratch
While I was gone he and the girls also decorated the house for my birthday.
It was perfect. Each girl made me an handmade birthday card and they each spent some of their allowance to buy me a small gift. Robin brought me a small calculator because apparently my "math skills are atrocious". As soon as I began to wonder if she is truly my daughter, she surprises me with a small journal filled with poems that she wrote about me. They were beautiful, she has such a way with words.
Starling, my middle girl, got me a collection of pretty rocks that she found and painted.
My youngest, Palila, painted a pretty picture of...something that resembles a dog/horse/tree.
The best gift of all was that Anthony brought a pendent necklace with five tiny birds sitting on a branch. Each bird had a tiny birthstone of each girl, myself and Anthony. It was a perfect representation of the Wren family. We changed into our pajamas and ate dessert first for dinner.
The cake was very nice, Anthony did a great job.
Afterwards, we had pizza and a movie marathon until the girls fell asleep all around me.
I must admit, my life is far different from my dream life. I thought that I would be a star dancer by now, with a tiny puppy and maybe thinking about having my only child to spoil. Instead I have three little girls and a house in the suburbs. I still think it turned out nice.
