You do it once, you're set for life—or at least until you run out of kids. It's the law of siblings, the justice of the blood: all shall reap what others have reaped before them. I'm sure it's in a book somewhere; maybe a stone tablet or two. But anyway 9 is the magic number for an iPod in our family. And since Jacob has an iPod Touch well... Guess what Anaïs wanted this year?
At least they know how fortunate they are. And watching her with her friends, five little girls looking out for each other, giggling and thick as thieves... You get a sense that something's right.
On to the movie and the slumber party.
Happy birthday sweetie.
