I’m not going to lie.
I want you to be excited about today. I wanted you to go to bed last night with those excited butterflies in your tummy like I always did. I want you to wake up and jump out of bed with a smile on your face that stretches from one ear to the other. I want you to pick a special meal, a favorite restaurant, your outfit for the day. I want you to be excited for people to greet you all day long. I want you to go to bed with that same smile from the morning, while clutching a new favorite item. Your whole body filled with that customary happiness most children feel on the best day of the year. The only day on the calendar, out of all 365, that really matters.
Today is your 5th birthday.
But, to you, it’s just Thursday.
