Today is my daughter’s birthday. My oldest baby is turning 23. It hardly seems possible. I mean, am I not still 23?
But she’s a wonderful daughter and I’m lucky she’s mine. Tonight one of her activity groups is having a New Year’s get-together, and instead of taking cake and ice cream to celebrate her birthday, as we had originally planned, we’re firing up our new chocolate fountain (again with the chocolate fountain!) and setting out strawberries, bananas, Rice Krispie treats (yes, Rice Krispie treats dipped in chocolate—this is what they eat in heaven), pretzels and assorted other goodies for dipping. Ashley’s favorite dipping item is marshmallows.
Happy Birthday, Ash!
