Ada's Third Birthday

The cake before I edited to make it look a little less unfriendly:

The birthday girls (cousins):

If you sent Ada a birthday present, she probably hasn't opened it yet; we're spacing them out. And here's why.

"You're going to hate me after this weekend," my mom told me.


"You'll see!"

"What presents did you get for your birthday?" I asked Ada after we'd been home for a few days. (The party was Way Up North at Grandma and Grandpa's house.)

"I didn't get presents. I got one perfect present."

"Really? What's that?"

"Um, it's really tall. And has lots of balls. And you can put them in the top, and - It's in the front room. C'mon, I'll show you."

This weekend we'll let her open the rest of her gifts.

P.S. There are 300 balls. And it's not staying in the front room. Also, it sings.

But it's such a FUN toy! We got to play with one at a friend-of-Abby birthday party over the summer. She just laid in it for a long while!

Happy Birthday (continued) Ada!

I know; it's great! And picking up the balls is a good, easy way for the girls to practice cleaning up.

I will make sure to never, ever tell my mother that exists. She's made a point of getting Ragsy the noisiest, largest toys with tons of parts and fiddly bits - she would buy that in a heartbeat! Good luck and enjoy the cleanup practice.

I am just contrary enough to buy obnoxious toys for friends' children. I favor percussion instruments and hammers. ;-)
