Happy Birthday, Pee Wee.



Happy happy birthday, children dear-- Happy things will come to you all year. If I had one wish, then it would be-- That you would give all your presents to me.


As a kid, the original song got a little boring, so I decided to change it up a bit. And I've loved singing it ever since.

Yesterday was Danin's 1st birthday. And even though I don't really believe in getting presents and throwing parties for kids who are too young to understand what's happening, I did want the day to be a little bit special. So I did make her a [burnt, woops!] pancake in the shape of the number 1, and I did put her in a new outfit, and I did give her a cupcake (which she totally understood) with a candle . And all day long I really did feel even more love and gratitude for her than I always do. She's such a good girl. I was going to tell you all of the things she does, but it would just be too hard for me not to brag, so I'll just avoid the temptation, and write it all down in the journal that I used to use. You're welcome.

Instead, I'll just ask you: Have any of you seen how REAL SIMPLE has those pages where they talk about new uses for every day household items? Well, today I came up with my own:

Everyday use: Plate holder













Aha! use: Magazine rack for the bathroom

That is the most magazines I have ever seen in a bathroom. It is like a doctors office in there. You go girl!

First things first! I love your version of the primary birthday song! I also love pee wee's nick name and she is adorable! Your magazine rack is genius. It reminds me of the Gratteau's! They all grew up calling the bathroom the 'library' because of all their dad's reading supplies there. I think that your bathroom is also now 'library' worthy! I may need to buy a plate rack too! :) Loved reading this post!

Nice re-use of a household item! If Danin is one that means Maisey is getting closer to one as well - crazy!
