Look, it's almost here

Mama, I turn eight tomorrow. But it won't actually happen until 1:15pm, when I was born. Right?

Technically, yes.

Well I can just hardly stand it. You know when you want something so badly that you are in pain? Real pain, Mama. I feel like that about this birthday. Have you ever felt like that?

I have. In fact, I felt just like that exactly eight years ago today. And the gift I got was even better than birthday cake.

Happy Almost Birthday, Doodlebug!
