She’s 4 years old and it’s crazy to me. That means that around 4 years ago, I started thinking, “know what would be cool? Having a baby and then owning a business and then starting from scratch. That seems like a great idea!”
Her favorite color is purple. She LOVES to camp with us. Wren loves narwhals (hence the narwhal-themed birthday party that you’ll see below). She really really REALLY loves Frozen. I don’t know how her love for Frozen has lasted this long, if we’re being honest.
She knows her letters and how to spell her name. Wren LOVES her friends and school. She wants to be a ballerina (I don’t know how to tell her that she doesn’t have any rhythm).
That also means that I’ve had 4 years of Wrenny Penny being freaking adorable, hilarious, strong-willed, stubborn, and smarter than any of us can handle. She’s something else, man. I can’t begin to explain how awesome she is.
Wren and I are birthday adjacent. Her birthday is the day after mine (in fact, my water broke at my birthday dinner – I didn’t even get to eat it!). She knows that her birthday is the day after mommy’s and loves that.
Like always, we had a party for her. And you know I go all out with the decorations.
Friends came, and that was fun (because it always is). She anxiously awaited them because she was so excited to show off her decorations. She thanked us over and over again for her party – which was precious and sweet and nothing like her. Maybe it’s because she’s growing up.
The post-party bounce house family time is always my favorite, though. We wait until everyone leaves, and go in as a family. And, you know, bring the camera because I can’t help myself.
Wren’s 4. The kids are growing up. It’s weird when I think about it – how they’re getting these adorable little personalities and independence. This is what it’s about, though, being a business owner, working to give them awesome memories like this one.
