"Don't worry, Mommy, I'll still be your baby. Even when I go to kindergarten." Princess Sparkles likes to reassure me that even though she's "almost grown-up" (she says she'll be a kid for one more year but when she's 5 she'll be a grown-up), that she'll still be my baby. I can't believe baby's already 4-years old. Time really does fly by when you have kids to gauge the time!
Yesterday I decided to wear a maxi skirt, a brown tank and a light weight white sweater with a little "bling" on the back. Normally I'm terrified of bugs, but for some reason I gravitate towards sequin-y bugs if they're designs on my clothes. I wanted to link up to Spunky Chateau's "Thursdays are for Thrifters" so I wore my thrifted maxi. And I was thrilled to dress up my (once again) neutral casual outfit with another GS Lillian piece I just got in the mail yesterday! Isn't this statement necklace gorgeous!!! (p.s. I just went to Shelly's blog so I could link to it and was surprised to see a picture of myself! She so kindly posted my pic from yesterday since I wore her beautiful cuff! Thanks, Shelly!).

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to making today really special for Princess Sparkles. My sister, Polka Dots, flew in from Hawaii to help celebrate. We're going to go to visit my mom, Fair Isle, and stepdad, Henley (since they're Sparkles' favorite people ever). We're going to take Sparkles for her favorite dim sum (she only likes eating the shu-mai and egg tarts), let her open presents, swim in the pool and have her favorite chocolate cake with plenty of frosting.
I can't believe my little girl is "almost a grown-up." At least she still wants to be my baby. Happy Birthday, Princess Sparkles! Hope it's the best birthday ever!
