Today, The Girl turned 8 years old! This morning, when she was having to wait 5 minutes for Boy Genius’ turn on legoclub.com to end so she could play on webkinz, you would have thought the world was coming to an end. At one point she cried, proclaiming this to be the worst birthday of her life! By lunchtime, of course, it was the best birthday of her life, because Pepa took her to Toys R Us to let her choose her birthday present! So easily comforted (or bribed, rather)! So, tonight we played barbies and had cheesecake for dessert and she went to bed with a smile; I think, however, we’re all in for a rude awakening if she wakes up in a mood tomorrow!
