My baby girl is 4!

And she started preschool today.Miss E has waited a loooooong time for preschool- She only got to go for a few weeks last year before I realized it wasn't a good environment and I never got her back into anything so she was SO ready and SO excited! She got to take these (super cute!) Hello Kitty cupcakes in to share. (copied some found on Flickr HERE.) We decided to skip the party (due to no money, and no energy for a super cheap home-made birthday party) and just try and make the day special for her- she wanted to go to the "Dinosaur Museum" so that's what we did! We finished the day with presents and Chips Ahoy ice cream cake at home and I think she had a good day!
She has suddenly grown up and along with the bossy-sassy side of her personality, we've seen a really fun, organized, hard working girl come out- she must get that from her dad. I have caught her cleaning her room late at night when she's supposed to be in bed sleeping, one day I took a nap and woke up to find she had been cleaning the house- really. She had organized messes that were in a couple rooms, wiped down the kitchen table, and the counter, sink and toilet in her bathroom. (possibly with the same rag, I re-cleaned the kitchen table promptly.) Happy birthday sweetie!!

Wow time really flies! I can't believe Miss E is already 4! I love the stories about her cleaning. Hahah.
P.S. I love the celebrate card! I wish I could go to the card class with you again.

That cake looks so good! I love that she's a little cleaner. I hope and dream I get one of those.

You are such a great mom! Looks like the apple didn't fall far from the tree or something like that. You know what I mean. She's darling.
