Liberty turned 12 last Friday. It’s hard to believe. It just seems so big. I remember being 12!
She asked if she could make her own cake with the Care Bear pan. Most definitely! She picked out a recipe for white cake from my mom… A cake of my childhood. She made herself cream cheese frosting, colored it, and went to town. She was disappointed it wasn’t as perfect as she’d have liked – but it tasted amazing!
And then. We were at Sam’s Club for the dress Liberty wanted for her birthday that is no longer there, and Ellie signed potty. She insisted. I marched her to the little toilet in the family bathroom and plopped her down. She’s 15 months, but if she wants to sit there, I’ll let her try it. She peed! She was so proud. She marched over to the sink wanting to wash her hands and walked out of the bathroom like she’s been doing this all her life. Oh, my word. I just don’t know. She’s since gone twice more.
