Happy Birthday to Mommy!

Emily was so great for my birthday!

From the moment she got up, to the moment she went to sleep, she was so good! So patient, so pleasant, so responsive.

It was a complete 180 from the previous nightmare of a day, so I was all the more thankful.

I think it may have had something to do with having her new James train (from Thomas the Tank Engine) along. She played with him in the restaurant when we went out to dinner with my mom, and it kept her very calm. Restaurants are usually meltdown triggers, so that was wonderful!

Anyway, I just wanted to brag about her. Thank you, Emily!

It would’ve been a nearly stress-free day, if I hadn’t gotten lost and taken two hours to reach the restaurant (normally about a 30-40 minute trip). Oh well, can’t win ’em all. It worked out fine. 🙂
