When we were in Minnesota celebrating Christmas with my Dad's side of the family, Grace had her "half birthday." January 21st. They celebrated it at school since she has a summer birthday and her teacher told her that on Sunday she would be 5 1/2! Exciting! A big deal to add that half in there, and now, you bet when someone asks how old she is, she includes that 1/2!
My Mom and I whipped up a half birthday cake for her, which was literally half a cake. And, being a girl after her mother's heart, she asked why she didn't get a whole cake! Thata girl.
Here's my sleepy-eyed 5 1/2 year old on her half birthday with her half of a cake.
And typical, at Nana's donuts AND cake were served for breakfast without second thought.
Can't believe she's almost 6! Insane!
