Birthdays are funny. It was a Big Deal when I turned 40 in October. But I didn’t feel any different.
We don’t know when Mia’s birthday is, and we don’t really know how old she is. So we celebrate the anniversary of the day we got her. Which was five years ago June 4. At the time, we thought she was 7, and I’m starting to think that was a pretty good estimate, since Leo is now 6, and he hasn’t started getting gray yet. If that means anything.
