The day before, on her actual birthday, we kept things low-key as well and stuck to tradition. We baked cupcakes, which I took to her class for a mini birthday celebration. And that evening at home, after we all sang her happy birthday, she opened her gifts.
April 26th is never just an ordinary day in this house. It's a very special day, the day of my daughter's birthday. The day I will never forget when I welcomed my princess to this world.
