Well, here it is the sixth day of my 30 Day Trial and I have not a clue what to write. I have already missed one day, so I really need to write something for today. But today has been one of those non-eventful days and I feel rather brain dead tonight. So meaningful this likely will not be.

This afternoon the boys and I went to the mall to find Miss Munchkin’s birthday presents. I bought three board books:

  • Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown
  • Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, by Bill Martin Jr & Eric Carle
  • Good Dog Carl, by Alexandra Day

All three books were favorites of her mother’s, so I am sure they will be well used.

In addition to the books, we went to Build-a-Bear, or whatever the name is for the one at the mall, and picked out a black cat with green eyes. Miss Munchkin has a thing for cats, so I know she’ll like that. And then we found a couple of small bouncy balls, since she seemed to like Uncle Charles’s basketball the last time she was here.

Tomorrow is the big party day. We will go over to Kat’s in the late afternoon for dinner and birthday cake or whatever the dessert of choice will be. Miss Munchkin will be one! A year ago tonight I was walking the floor with Kat, wondering when/if Miss Munchkin was ever going to make her arrival. And now she’s one. Simply amazing!
