The party for my 12 year old is over, and we survived – the chocolate fountain (a HUGE success!)
(served with marshmallows, mini doughnuts, jelly babies, grapes, strawberries and fresh pineapples)
the FOUR crafts – phone charms; Christmas snowflakes; candles; decorated clip boards
Not forgetting the chocolate birthday cake, and the 6 friends from school.
So 12 years ago today my daughter arrived, 4 weeks early, and my husband and I became parents for the first time.
Here she was then just minutes after the c/section………. she lay quietly, staring at me intently ……… wondering what in the world had just happened to her…….. and she wasn’t the only one!!!!!
And here she was this evening.
