The Story of Moodle's 3rd Birthday

I admit that sometimes I'm not the world's greatest mother. Like a couple of days ago for example when it was Moodle's birthday and The Man called me from the car to say he was almost home which meant we could celebrate the occasion together as a family for the first time. And then he said, "I've got her present in the back of the car, have you made a card?"

And I totally flipped out.
Because I hadn't.

So I rushed around my scrap room finding lots of purple things ('cos that's her favourite colour) and lots of fun birthday-type embellishments. And I slapped them all down and sprinkled it with glitter. It turns out the 3 on the journaling card and on the Scrabble chip were just a very happy coincidence. I did a little victory dance :-)

And she was none-the-wiser and enjoyed every minute of her day.
The End.

PS. She got a bike
