My girl's birthday is coming soon so we brought her to the bakery to choose a cake for herself. She looked through all the books and then she pointed to the Power Puff Girls and said "I think I want this one".
Daddy was trying to get her to choose a Kunfu Panda image for her cake. He said so in a rather loud voice at the shop "Choose Kungfu Panda! Kungfu Panda is nice!" and she said "Shhhh daddy, not so loud!"
I showed her some Hello Kitty pictures which she used to like. "I had this one before" she said as she pointed to a Hello Kitty sitting in a car.
She just turned 9 but we are celebrating her birthday later because she is having exams and can't enjoy herself fully so we decided to postpone the celebration. She has even drawn up a birthday itenary in anticipation of the big day. :)
My girl is growing up fast. (I think daddy wants her to remain his baby. Don't worry daddy, she will always be your baby). The girl at the cake shop says she can't fit in all the Power Puff Girls on our 1kg cake. So eventually (after a great deal of leg shuffling and hard thinking!) the girl chose the Pink Power Puff girl aptly named "Blossom" Yup! She is blossoming into a little lady now. One that must make her own choices (Mummy suggested the other Power Puff Girl with the golden pony tails at first) although after we got out of the shop, she kept on asking "Mummy, how ar, I like the other Power Puff Girl too. They're both nice."
"Well, if they're both nice, then it doesn't matter which one you choose does it?" She smiled and seemed satisfied with that reply. Happy 9th birthday sweetheart. Time flies. It seems like just yesterday, you were a baby.
