We celebrated my daughter's birthday yesterday and it was a very cheerful moments. There were only her, me and her dad, her grandparents, and two of her cousins. I don't think it counted as a party, but we did have a lot of fun. Singing, blowing the candle, taking out the decoration off the cake, eating the cake, and opening the gifts. Part of me wanted to have a big celebration before, where I could invite all families and relatives... but at the end of the day, I felt really content with what we had. It's a very small gathering, but it was comfy and happy. We laughed a lot. I think what matters the most is that my daughter really really had fun. She really enjoyed her birthday celebration. She got the cake she chose herself, she got the gifts she wanted, and she got all the lovings she could take for the day.
