The Girl with Four Birthdays

The Girl with Four Birthdays

My younger daughter, Ines, loves celebrating her birthdays so much that she celebrates it four times.  The first one is with her grandparents in France before we head back to the US.  The second one is usually celebrated with just the nuclear family, the four of us.  The third one is often celebrated with her uncle who shares an August birthday with her.  The fourth is with her friends from school.

It may sound a bit excessive but it is so much fun to see the energy and planning she devotes in planning these celebrations.  She is only turning seven but it’s funny to see the hostess/party planner in her emerge already.  For instance, for her birthday celebration in France, she insisted on preparing on one of the desserts that is inspired by Hello Kitty and made of fruits and M&Ms.  No cookbook or recipe, just her own vision and creation.

She also cleaned and organized the house with her grandmother in preparation for her birthday feast .  I love her enthusiasm and gusto for life.  I hope she carries this attitude for the rest of your life.
