Ariana is 5! Her Birthday Interview!
Ariana turned 5 on November 6th. Her birthday fell on a school day. I made her orange rolls for breakfast and put balloons on her chair in the morning. I put stickers and a note in her lunch and we celebrated by taking cupcakes (pink cupcakes with purple frosting and rainbow sprinkles just like she wanted) and small goodie bags to her friends in her class. That night we had one of her favorite dinners (chicken nuggets with ketchup, broccoli and cucumber with ranch) She made a wish and blew out her #5 candle and opened her presents from family. We finished off the night with one of our birthday traditions and read Happy Birthday to You by Dr. Seuss.
We are having a joint birthday party with one of her friends later this month!
Just like two years ago on the night before her birthday I had a birthday interview with her. Here is how our conversation went this year.
