Happy Cancerversary Charli!!!
Yesterday was "Chalri's special day" as we all seemed to call it! She had a nice day and hopefully was able to feel special. When I asked her if she knew why it was her big day she told me "it is my special day because my doctors found my cancer". When she says cancer, she says it so cute and sweet -- totally not what that word deserves.
Our day started with Chad and Charli picking me up from work for a lunch date at Picket Fence. After that we made our way to do some bowling, which was so much fun to watch her excitement, and then played arcade games. With her tickets she wanted "something to eat!" so she got jelly beans and picked three dinosaurs! From there we went to paint pottery, Charli made a great plate and, no surprise, Chad did too!! Our next surprise was ice cream which was followed by a cat nap in the car on our way to see the bunnies and chicks before picking up "buddy" from daycare. When we got home she got to eat breakfast for supper and pick a cartoon to watch and stay up late for! I forgot to take my camera, which I am still made about, but will post pictures of the plates later!
Putting her to bed last night was amazing. I held her in my arms and remembered holding her in my arms three years ago and all those scary terrible things I was feeling then were no more, because in my arms was an amazing little person who has changed the world.
