We invited friends from church and friends from school. And since it was a regular school day for everyone else, the place was deserted and Lucy and Friends took over!
We had cupcakes, dress up, playtime, sandwiches and everything that makes a 4 year old birthday party just wonderful.
So, um, Lucy has a special friend at school. If he is in the classroom before she is, she doesn't want to go in. She just wants to "wait here in the hallway." Or if he is getting out of his car when we pull up Lucy will ask if we can "just sit here and watch him." She makes him cards, writes him notes and tells stories about how they make each other laugh by saying-giggle-"diaper." This friend had picked out her present all himself and she was happy to thank him. This pose lasted for about 2 whole minutes. It was kinda weird and kinda cute all at the same time. Our (very protective) Neighbor Jeff said that if she hugs him like that again, her nose will fall off. I told her Jeff knows a lot about a lot of stuff.
In other 4 year old Love Life News, Lucy has since told us of 2 OTHER boys she loves at school. One got her a dress for her birthday and now captured Lu's heart. She regularly tells us she's going to marry him. The other one is her preferred regular playing partner (and quite the stylish young man) and she tells us that she's gonna fall in love with him. This young man and the other huggy young man and Lucy all play together and when the boys decide they just want to play on their own? Well, Lucy has something to say about that.
Lucy's Daddy has a lot to say about ALL of it but it's easier to just close his eyes and pretend she's never growing up and that she's not going to get any cuter or more charismatic than she is at only Age 4.
Happy Birthday Lucy!!
