It is a good thing three year olds are so easy to please. At about 5:30pm yesterday I felt a sense that I had failed to provide the birthday for Eli that I had wanted. Richard was quick to point out that Eli didn’t notice anything lacking. Isn’t that often the way it goes? We don’t live up to our own elaborate expectations but our children never know the difference. Or maybe they even appreciate the difference. The simplicity. Let this be a lesson to me.
